Review:

'This book should be essential reading for both men and women interested in taking a fresh approach when re-examining gender and organisational behaviour. An excellent, comprehensive text which successfully challenges the male-as-norm model of management.' Professor Marilyn J. Davidson, Manchester School of Management, UMIST, UK 'The author pulls no punches in this critique of both organisational practice and the academic discipline of Organisational Behaviour. ... This is a very comprehensive treatment of the subject and represents an important contribution to the process of redressing the limited perspective of OB literature on which the author writes so passionately.' Economic Outlook and Business Review 'Wilson's text is both thought-provoking and scholarly. I hope it finds a place alongside mainstream texts in organizational behaviour courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. It not only provides a much-needed critical perspective on organizational theory, it also helps men and women to understand the complexities of gender socialization and gender relations int he workplace.' Women in Management Review

Book Description Taylor & Francis Ltd, United Kingdom, 2003. Hardback. Condition: New. 2nd New edition. Language: English. Brand new Book. Organizational Behaviour and Gender provides an alternative to the gender silence of the standard OB textbooks. This Second Edition updates and expands the text's coverage and employs the most recent research findings to portray the world of work in a realistic manner. Organizational Behaviour and Gender is a comprehensive text. The text examines some of the assumptions that have been made about women at work - for example that women's 'difference' is rooted in biology and that women and men have contrasting (and even polar opposite) skills and attitudes. The text considers the key topics in OB (such as selection, assessment,leadership and motivation) to test such assumptions. The book describes the reality of working life for women. It examines issues of low pay, part-time working, family responsibilities, home working and horizontal and vertical job segregation. It asks whether inequality of opportunity comes about because of actual gender differences or from prejudicial expectations and thinking. The last chapter is about sex and sexuality in organizations. Sexual behaviour in organizations is pervasive but is rarely discussed in OB textbooks. This chapter describes the masculine and heterosexual business environment and examines the issues of work romances and sexual harassment. The text provides numerous learning aids (including discussion topics and chapter questions) to assist both the lecturer and the student. Seller Inventory # APC9780754609001
