This Handbook is the successor to a 2010 collection entitled The Oxford Handbook of Sociology and Organization Studies: Classical foundations (information on that volume is appended). The Introduction to that collection was titled: “A social science which forgets its founders is lost”. Whereas that volume aimed to renew awareness of the rich heritage bequeathed organization studies by pre-1950 sociology, this second, companion volume aims to strengthen ties between organization studies and contemporary sociological work. This volume appears at a time when there are increasing institutional barriers to such cooperation, potentially generating a myopia that constricts new developments. Aiming to counteract that myopia, this volume offers scholars authoritative accounts of theorists and research themes in sociology and social theory which have impacted on organization studies in the recent period. The focus is on European and North American scholarship.

Please note the upcoming workshop on Central and eastern European employment relations in perspective: history, geography and variegation, which will take place on the 30th January 2015 at University of Greenwich.  The workshop is organized by the Work and Employment Research Unit of the University of Greenwich and  International Employment Relations Association (Europe). It aims to provide transdisciplinary and critical perspectives on political and socio-economic restructuring that has characterised post-socialist central and eastern European (CEE) countries in order to discuss changed and transnationalised employment relations, re-valuation and (self)disciplining of subjectivities, resistance and variegated forms of capitalisms that characterise contemporary CEE region and its relations with the West.
