This text uses an economic analysis to develop a framework for the study of organisation. The authors develop key themes such as the international experience of the economic organisation, the influence of technological change and international comparisons of organisations.

They begin with the theory of exchange and systematically develop the theory of economic organisation without mathematical or other prerequisites. The approach is designed toaccurately reflect the changing business environment through examination of organizational issues from a historical, technical and global perspective.
