            Organising in the Information Age: Distributed Technology, Distributed Leadership, Distributed Identity, Distributed Discourse

            This title was first published in 2002. Networked technologies are now widespread: in workplaces, at home, and in transport, connecting providers of products and services with consumers, and linking government with the governed. The distributed nature of such technologies, their ...non-hierarchical structure and widespread availability, affords modes of access to information, for its creation and transmission as well as reception and consumption. The spatial and temporal constraints on patterns of communication exchange that have hitherto applied are dissolved by the availability of distributed and asynchronous modes of communication. This volume explores key facets of the consequences of the emergence of this distributed technology for organizational life. It argues that these developments have taken place at such a pace that organizational theory has not kept up to analyse and explain adequately the current applications or to explore possible future applications. This book contributes to the necessary development of organizational theory, by providing analysis and empirical studies of existing applications. The themes of distributed technology, distributed leadership, distributed identity and distributed discourse provide key elements for new modes of analysis, and potentially new vistas for the future shape of globalisation.

            This title was first published in 2000: In examining the domestic politics of international co-operation, this book addresses two important questions: 1. Why do governments often take different positions in negotiations about common problems - why do some states push for internat...ional regulation while others hold back? 2. How can variance in the domestic implementation of and compliance with, international agreements be explained - why do some states deliver more than they have promised, others less? The authors report findings and observations from a major study which focused on efforts to establish international regulations to cope with the problem known as acid rain. They provide in-depth case studies of nine European countries as well as a comparative analysis searching for patterns and general conclusions.
