Winner of the 1994 George R. Terry Book Award given by the National Academy of Management to "the book judged to have made the most outstanding contribution to the advancement of management knowledge."
"In this book, I have assembled learnings from ten years of teaching, research, and consulting related to cultural diversity in organizations," writes Taylor Cox. "My objective is to provide a comprehensive text that would be useful as an aid for teaching, organization development, and scholarship."
The result is a major advance in our understanding of cultural diversity and its effects on organizational behavior and performance. This book:
o provides the most comprehensive base of knowledge yet assembled on the topic;
o organizes the material around a powerful new conceptual model that frames the issue in a systematic way;
o captures the enormous complexity of the topic by examining diversity on three levels of analysis-individual, group, and organizational-and by addressing diversity from multiple perspectives-theory, research, and practice.
