Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1978, Vol 23(11), 902. Reviews the book, Organizational Behavior by Abraham K. Korman (1977). This book is a revised edition of that text and purportedly has been modified to encompass those topical areas that have come to be collectively labeled as “organizational behavior.” The main strengths of the book are the evidence of Korman's scholarship and his ability to present material in a clear and interesting fashion. Its major weakness is an overly psychological perspective of organizational behavior. Fortunately, however, psychology in fact is the basic discipline on which most of organizational behavior theory is built. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
