Institutions and Organizations
Ideas, Interests, and Identities

Fourth Edition


September 2013 | 360 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Creating a clear, analytical framework for readers, Institutions and Organizations: Ideas and Interests, Fourth Edition continues to reflect the richness and diversity of institutional thought, viewed both historically and as a contemporary, ongoing field of study. By presenting the differences as well as the underlying commonalities of institutional theories, this book presents a cohesive view of the many flavors and colors of institutionalism. It evaluates and clarifies developments in both theory and research while identifying future research directions.

Key Features:

- Elaborates on the three pillars of institutions as part of a larger framework and sheds light on the interplay between institutions and social systems

Includes a detailed discussion between three differing explanations and approaches of institutionalization—economic, sociological, and neo-institutional scholars in organizational studies

- Examines how symbols, relations, routines, artifacts, and other carriers transmit institutional arrangements across time and space

- Devotes a chapter to the theoretical and practical significance of organization fields

Emphasizes the best and most recent theoretical and empirical contributions in each chapter
