Description: This edited volume in the SIOP Organizational Frontiers series will be one of the first to look at the psychological factors behind politics and power in organizations. Noted contributors are from schools of management, psychology, sociology and political science. They look at the theory , research, methodology and ethical issues related to organizational politics and climates. The book is divided into three parts: Part 1 looks at the historical evolution of the field, Part 2 provides an integration of the organizational politics with important organizational behavior constructs and/or areas of inquiry, such as the chapter by Lisa Leslie and Michele Gelfand in which they discuss the implications of cross-cultural politics on expatriates and within cross-national mergers. Part 3 focuses on individual differences and organizational politics focusing on the nature of political relationships.
