Lawrence, Thomas B. (2008) Power, Institutions and Organizations. In: Greenwood, Royston, Oliver, Christine, Suddaby, Roy and Sahlin-Andersson, Kerstin, (eds.) Handbook of Organizational Institutionalism. Sage Publications Ltd., London, pp. 170-197. ISBN 9781446270493

Abstract

Institutional theory lies at the heart of organizational theory yet until now, no book has successfully taken stock of this important and wide-ranging theoretical perspective.
With insight and clarity, the editors of this handbook have collected and arranged papers so readers are provided with a map of the field and pointed in the direction of new and emerging themes. The academics who have contributed to this handbook are respected internationally and represent a cross-section of expert organization theorists, sociologists and political scientists. Chapters are a rich mix of theory, how to conduct institutional organizational analysis and empirical work.

The SAGE Handbook of Organizational Institutionalism will change how researchers, teachers and advanced students think about organizational institutionalism.
