About this book
Organisations and Institutions is a critical introduction to organisational economics. It examines the threat to sociology from the imperialist expansion of economics and the relative importance of efficiency and power in analysing organisations. These are related to two major issues in social science, firstly, the organisation of work, and secondly, the separation of ownership from control. It is essential reading for those studying organisation theory, sociology and economics and who want to learn more about the tensions between their disciplines.
