For many years Emmanuel Lazega has explored communication behavior and decision-making processes of small workgroups within larger organizations. To account for the knowledge claims of members of those groups, and for the ways in which such claims are legitimated collectively and translated into action, he presents a theory of the interactive elaboration of information on which decisions are based.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This text is clearly written.... Get this book if you are interested, as I am, in how decisions are affected by the micropolitics in the social construction of reality. The book succeeds in incorporating something that I hunger for in organizational studies--juicy excerpts from the author's interviews that reveal tensions in the worksites studied. Thorugh the selectioni of focus and methodological approach, the book represents a step along what promises to be a fruitful line of inquiry. Read the book during a relaxed time of year and keep it at hand in order to plunder the literature review."

--William D. Rifkin, Contemporary Sociology

"The arguments of the book are intriguing and important enough to invite researchers and theorists to test and expand its claims.... The book raises questions... in ways that are likely to be fruitful for reflection on and investigation into cognitive and political processes in groups."

--Jean M. Bartunek, The Academy of Management Review
