Institutional theory has become the dominant conversation in organization theory. In this volume many of its leading exponents show where it is going, what it can do and how it engages with related fields
Stewart Clegg

The SAGE Handbook of Organizational Institutionalism is a valuable addition to the collection of any academic interested in institutional theory...this is a well written, comprehensive account of current thinking on institutional theory. It is a powerful tool for those engaged in investigating the broader context in which organizations operate, and is of considerable value to those working with the theory. It will no doubt help to shape the debates and future research in this area for years to come

This is a book much needed. Organizational institutionalism represents perhaps the most fascinating theoretical perspective in organization studies, one with a long and verable pedigree. This brilliant Handbook is impressive in its coverage, the framing of topics and the breadth of international scholars it brings together. The editors, all leading researchers into aspects of institutionalism, must be congradulated for producing such a marvellous volume
Haridimos Tsoukas
The George D. Mavros Research Professor of Organization Theory, ALBA, Greece and Professor of Organization Studies, Warwick University, UK Editor-in-Chief, Organization Studies

This is the big book on institutional theory we have all been waiting for, the one that will revitalize the field by connecting foundational themes to institutional dynamics. This book is not just a comprehensive handbook, but also a mother lode of new thinking across both familiar territory ( e.g., organizational fields, networks, the professions) and new provinces (e.g., transnationalization, identities, critical theory). Highly, highly recommended
Martin Kilduff

This superb volume is unique in both the thoroughness of coverage of the field of institutional theory as well as the outstanding quality of its contributions
Danny Miller

I shall be consulting this Handbook for many years to come. It is an invaluable source of reference on one of the most significant approaches to understanding how and why organizations behave as they do. By expertly reviewing both the development and current diversity of organizational institutionalism, this book leaves the reader in no doubt about the centrality and rich potential of the subject
John Child
University of Birmingham, UK

It is now three decades since the "new" institutionalism burst on the intellectual scene and a most appropriate time to take stock of missteps, accomplishments, and future directions. This theoretical thrust has revitalized many scholarly arenas across the social sciences, but none more so than organization studies. Royston Greenwood and his co-editors have assembled a stellar stable of scholars who collectively provide a comprehensive assessment of this vibrant field
W. Richard Scott
Professor Emeritus Stanford University

This Handbook is 'must reading' for any organization and management scholar. It provides a timely and comprehensive update of institutional theory and its relationships with other organization theories. It's 34 chapters are written by leading American and European scholars and capture the rich variety of institutional perspectives
