Reviews

'this is an excellent contribution to the

field of gender and organisation studies ... I would thoroughly

recommend the book to anyone who is interested in organisation studies -

whether they think gender is significant or not.' Joanne Brewis - Work, Employment and Society `This book contributes to the critical studies of gender and organization and engages with a range of issues. It will be both useful and interesting to a broad audience' - British Journal of Sociology `This book goes beyond the polarized debates on gender in organizations... the authors show us organizational relations in all their gendered richness and diversity' - Wendy Hollway, Leeds University `In their understanding of gender and organizations, Alvesson and Billing are unique.... Through the mix of "truths" and tensions the authors meet the challenge of providing a book that contributes to organizational learning and creativity' - Albert J Mills, Saint Mary's University, Canada `This book contributes to the critical studies of gender and organization and engages with a range of issues. It will be both useful and interesting to a broad audience' - British Journal of Sociology `This is an excellent contribution to the field of gender and organization studies. It is detailed and rigorous, providing a useful critique of existing material and suggestions for the future which progress some of the most significant recent developments in the area. I would thoroughly recommend the book to anyone who is interested in organization studies - whether they think gender is significant or not' - British Journal of Sociology
