Annotation:

As the fundamental organizational principle, hierarchy is everywhere. Perhaps because of its ubiquity, the idea of hierarchy is relatively under-analyzed as the strains on society imposed by organizational inequality have grown. This concise book provides an accessible overview of this fundamental idea and how it interacts with and effects the world of business and management.

Written by a world-renowned scholar, the book takes readers on a journey which traverses how hierarchy is understood in various disciplines and its evolution throughout history, before going on to analyze the advantages and disadvantages that the idea brings as a form of business organization.

With reference to literature from a range of sources, the book provides an inspirational introduction to understanding what is perhaps the key idea in business and management.
