The book is structured into five core sections. These are Analyses of the Chinese System, Organizational Complexity, the Strategic Management of Knowledge, Knowledge in Big Science, andInnovations in Education. Each section features one key paper that Boisot had written or co-authored, accompanied by extended commentaries that put his contribution into a wider perspective. A further part of the book includes six reflective essays by Boisot’s collaborators, all of whom are world-renowned authorities. Max Boisot was a pioneering thinker and management educator. Knowledge and the Study of Organization and Management brings together in one place –for the first time ever– the breadth and depth of his work as well as pointing to directions of further development. Its unifying foundation is Boisot’s treatment of knowledge and how to make its conceptual analysis relevant to managerial and educational practice in ways that he demonstrated so powerfully.This book is of considerable value to organization and management scholars, graduate students, management consultants, and intellectually curious managers of global enterprises. Max Boisot’s concepts have high practical relevance as well as a sound theoretical basis, and many have found their way into executive education courses. This book will therefore be a valuable resource for both academics and practitioners. (http://www.oxfordscholarship.com/view/10.1093/acprof:oso/9780199669165.001.0001/acprof-9780199669165)
