Erhard Friedberg is full professor of Sociology at Sciences Po Paris, director of the MPA (master of Public Affairs)/Sciences Po and research-fellow at the CSO.

The Multimedia Encyclopedia of Organization Theory proposes 288 entries (biographies, book presentations and conceptual articles structured around 17 different approaches to organizational analysis). They present a complete panorama and documentation of the history and the conceptual development of this interdisciplinary field from the end of the nineteenth century on. On this ground alone, it would already be a useful resource for teachers and students of organization theory.

What turns this DVDROM into a unique teaching and learning device, however, is the use it makes of the resources accumulated in the interviews of Chris Argyris, Peter Blau, Nils Brunsson, Ronald Burt, Michel Crozier, Peter Drucker, Mark Granovetter, Michael Hannan, David Hickson, Jay Lorsch, Michael Maccoby, James G. March, Marc Maurice, John Meyer, Douglass North, Johan P. Olsen, Jeffrey Pfeffer, Charles Perrow, Walter W. Powell, Jean-Daniel Reynaud, W. Richard Scott, Thomas C. Schelling, Philip Selznick, Herbert A. Simon, Arthur Stinchcombe, Alain Touraine, Harrison White, William Foote Whyte, and Oliver Williamson.
