Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1994, Vol 39(1), 96. Reviews the books, Organizational Justice: The Search for Fairness in the Workplace by Blair H. Sheppard, Roy J. Lewicki, and John W. Minton (see record 1992-98621-000) and Justice in the Workplace: Approaching Fairness in Human Resource Management edited by Russell Cropanzano (see record 1993-97521-000). The first book provides a thought-provoking integration of theory of organizational justice without getting bogged down in a detailed review of prior research. The first three chapters make up the theory section, presenting a thought-provoking scheme for identifying the range and source of standards people use in judging fairness and discussing the underlying factors that determine how people respond to a perceived injustice. The second book has a more traditional academic flavor. It is an edited volume composed of 12 chapters authored by an impressive list of premier academic researchers in organizational justice.
