About this book

Introduction

This new text provides a comprehensive overview of the many contributions psychologists have made to the study of work and its organizational setting. The full range of topics in organizational and occupational psychology are presented in a critical and analystic fashion. The book is informed by a psychodynamic orientation and uses the perception of time as a theme for providing a different approach to some familiar material. Students will find this a clear and accessible jargon-free introductory text.
