`Review from previous edition The contributors to this volume are truly "great minds in management"... this volume should be read by all aspiring scholars and is well worth inclusion in management doctoral seminars.' Academy of Management Review `...what the book delivers is two-fold. First it provides the reader with a vista of the current management landscape featuring some of the prominent theories that have evolved in the field. Secondly it provides insights into the process of theory development through original accounts by theory developers. On both scores the book is valuable...I would recommend the book to anyone who is interested in theory building, especially to those who are keen to probe how it is accomplished in an interdisciplinary, applied field such as management.'
