Review: Thomas S. Eberle, Sabine Hoidn & Katarina Sikavica (Eds.) (2007). Fokus Organisation. Sozialwissenschaftliche Perspektiven und Analysen [Focus Organization: Social Scientific Perspectives and Analyses]
This transdisciplinary anthology was published on the occasion of the 65th birthday of Emil WALTER-BUSCH, an organization scientist from St. Gallen, Switzerland. Alongside discussions of current theories about the character of organizations, the collection introduces and evaluates international management research as well as approaches to organizational change. All the articles are embedded in a reflexive approach to the production of social-scientific knowledge. This anthology, as interesting for organization researchers as for sociologists of knowledge and science, is particularly successful in not only taking up and developing the thoughts of Emil WALTER-BUSCH but also in capturing the spirit of his scientific work.
