Book Review: Engineering culture: control and commitment in a high-tech corporation

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article review

Corporate 'culture' - a way of harmonising organisational goals with the aspirations of individual employees, a sinister form of mind control, or just vacuous and pious waffle that forms the current fad of management consultants and similar-minded prophets? This book engages such issues through a detailed ethnographic study of the mechanisms by which corporate goals are implanted in professionals employed by an unnamed American high-tech corporation famed for its strong organisational culture. By Gideon Kunda, Philadelphia: Temple University Press, 1992, 297 pp.
