Scott (emeritus, sociology, Stanford U.) presents the new edition of his introductory textbook on the macro-level study of organizations. The work is at once descriptive and theoretical, providing and explanation of the development of three major theoretical perspectives and proposing a synthetic fourth before applying the perspectives to the examination of organizational environments, strategies, and structures.
