'Every so often, a book comes along that pulls together the knowledge in an area into a coherent perspective that is rich with either new research ideas or practical implications. Haslam's analysis of organizations through the lens of social identity theory has both and it is well written. He has reanalyzed the big issues from management and organizational psychology, including their historical roots. His critical analyses of leadership, motivation, groups, negotiations, power and conflict are full of insights and implications that researchers and practitioners alike will enjoy ' - Robert Wood, Australian Graduate School of Management 'This is a truly outstanding book that will undoubtedly revolutionize the way organizational behavior is thought about. It provides a coherent theoretical framework for understanding the central issues in the field, clearly explains how social identity processes affect organizational behaviour, and points to the critical research issues that need to be addressed in the future.' - Nyla Branscombe, The University of Kansas' 'Alex Haslam has done a marvellous job of integrating social identity principles into a thoroughly scholarly and complete review of the whole field of organizational psychology. He has written not only a textbook but also a critical and constructive examination of the contemporary field and at the same time a superb summary of and introduction to social identity ideas.A "must read" for any organizational or social psychologist who wants to know what the social identity approach has to offer.' - Professor John C Turner, Australian National University 'With this volume, Alex Haslam shows off his extraordinary skills as both an educator and a researcher. He illuminates how scientific thinking about organizational psychology has developed over time, and provides a state-of-the art overview of research highlighting the social identity perspective (including an appendix comparing different measures that have been developed to examine organizational identification).As a result, I think this makes an excellent course text for beginning as well as advanced students of organizational psychology, but at the same time, this book is a "must read" for researchers interested in the social identity approach to organizational psychology. '- Naomi Ellemers, Professor of Social and Organizational Psychology, Leiden University The study and practice of organizational psychology is having a growing impact on all our lives and it raises a multitude of fascinating and substantial questions. How does human psychology make organizational behaviour possible? How does belonging to organizations affect the way we think, feel and behave? And how is an organization's purpose, performance and culture affected by the individuals and groups within it? Psychology in Organizations addresses these questions by presenting an approach to organizational psychology that draws upon the large body of research that has been informed by social identity and self-categorization theories.In contrast to the individualism that has come to dominate the study of organizations, this approach identifies and explains the distinctive forms of organizational behaviour associated with people's membership in groups and teams. The importance and practical implications of the social identity approach are underlined in a text which provides a review and integrated theoretical treatment of core organization topics - including leadership, motivation, communication, decision-making, negotiation, power, productivity, and industrial protest.
