Classics in Management Thought presents by theme an authoritative selection of the most important articles in management published during the last fifty years. Under the general editorship of Cary Cooper, an international panel of leading management thinkers have identified those published articles and papers which in their view provide the essential foundations of modern management thought. These articles and papers were originally published in a wide range of journals and books many of which will not be available in scholarly libraries.
Classics in Management Thought is an essential reference to the relatively few path-breaking articles that have shaped management science in key areas such as decision making, leadership, motivation and all aspects of organizational behaviour. It will be an essential companion for both scholars and practitioners in management.
