New informal reviews and mentions of Enabling Creative Chaos

Friday, February 11th, 2011

A reviewer on Good Reads was kind enough to provide a review that highlights several of the main points of my book Enabling Creative Chaos: The Organization Behind the Burning Man Event. Click here to read his review, which starts with: “This truly lovely bit of organizational sociology is about “the difficulties of creating an enabling organization: how can members establish sufficient structure and coordination that support but do not constrain their activities?” (Page 153).”

In addition, Howard Lune, at Hunter College, CUNY, has included a short discussion of my research in his new sociology of organizations textbook Understanding Organizations (2010, Polity). See p. 144-145.
