With updated examples and research but purposely minus such learning aids as review questions, this edition meets its goal of offering an alternative to much lengthier texts in the organizational behavior field. Robbins (San Diego State U.) discusses OB topics relating to ethics, diversity, and globalization throughout rather than in stand-alone chapters. The organizational culture section includes a discussion of workplace spirituality. A companion Web site and other supplements are available. Annotation c.
