The Kellys make clear that their book reflects a movement away from the academic-purist position, where the sole concern is with theoretically significant research, to a position which recognizes that organizational behavior is a crossroads subject where traffic [that comes] mainly from behavioral science, computer technology, and economics coalesces with the ideas streaming out of organizational practice. Aimed at professional managers and students, both undergraduates as well as those on the M.B.A. level, this book assumes little prior knowledge of behavioral science or organizational theory. Readers will get what they need of those subjects here, enough to follow Kelly's argument. They will see how behavioral and organizational research has helped (but sometimes hindered) executives as they attempt to deal with critical happenings in their jobs. With case study material woven into the text and with observations from his own experiences with business as well as academic organizations, the Kellys' book is a readable, engrossing argument for and against the orthodoxies of organizational behavior studies-and the assurance that whatever else it may or not be, organizational behavior is certainly not static.
