Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1994, Vol 39(2), 194–195. Reviews the book, Refraining Organizational Culture edited by Peter J. Frost, Larry F. Moore, Meryl Reis Louis, Craig C. Lundberg, and Joanne Martin (1991). This book sets out to create a fresh start for those interested in studying culture in organizations. By avoiding controversies over methods, this book falls a little short of fully achieving its objectives of a fresh start. Certainly there remains a need to clear the air regarding the use of quantitative and qualitative data collection on culture as well as quantitative and qualitative data analysis. The current book is a collection of chapters by friends who agree that culture is important, accessible by participant observation, and flexible enough to tell us about how people in organizations come to understand, doubt, and dispute the roles they play.
