About this book


The first volume in a series of three focuses on myth in everyday organizational life, pertaining to individual actors: heroes and heroines, and the roles they play in organizations. Attitudes and temperaments, as well as professional ethos, are narrated and mythologized to reveal an archetypal dimension of organizing and organizations.
