CHOICE Review

Cummings (Univ. of Southern California) has assembled an organization development (OD) dream team to provide an overview of the field, fully mature as a discipline and practice, and ever evolving beyond its origins in psychology. OD integrates knowledge from such varied perspectives as anthropology, business administration, economics, engineering, industrial relations, and sociology. The book is organized in four discrete parts. Contributors first focus on the nature and process of OD before offering in parts 2 and 3 a menu of interventions from the process and techno-structural, human resources, and strategic frameworks. The final section looks at how OD can be applied in special settings such as the public sector, family-owned companies, and global networks, to name a few. Complete with a name and subject index, this volume is significant in relevance and gravitas, unveiling the hard-fought wisdom of the theorists and practitioners who shaped, and are shaped, by the dynamic work of managing change in organizations. A veritable one-stop resource on the topic of organization development--its history, process, practices, and pitfalls. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Especially for OD practitioners, but also upper-division undergraduate and graduate students and faculty. G. E. Leaf Spokane Community College
