BATON ROUGE – Carole L. Jurkiewicz, Woman’s Hospital Distinguished Professor of Healthcare
Management in LSU’s Public Administration Institute, has coauthored a book, titled
“The Foundations of Organizational Evil.”
According to Jurkiewicz, the book is an examination of the concept of organizational
evil, conceptually weaving the interchange between evil individuals, who ultimately
create the organizational environment that is evil, and the elements of policy, culture
and manipulations of the social environment.
The book also gives professionals, scholars and students a broad understanding of
evil from a conceptual and practical perspective, while providing a better understanding
of the potential relationships between organizational evil and various aspects of
organizational functioning. In addition, the book integrates a philosophical and pragmatic
understanding of organizational evil into a coherent approach to management and administration
in the private, public and nonprofit sectors.
“The Foundations of Organization Evil” is available in both hardcover and paperback editions and can be purchased at http://www.mesharpe.com/mall/resultsa.asp?Title=The+Foundations+of+Organizational+Evil.
