    This volume will present new research on the colorblindness versus multiculturalism debate, assist in broadening the diversity ideology conversation, share this conversation across social science domains including industrial/organizational psychology, social psychology, and law and public policy, and highlight how the nature of diversity ideology may be fluid and therefore be different depending on the diversity dimension discussed. 

  4. The Dark Side of Transformational Leadership

    People have been horrified by the story of three women in London who were rescued by the police from what was initially described as a case of ‘slavery.’ It has since emerged that they were part of a small political cult for over 30 years, run by a married couple. Dennis Tourish is Professor of Leadership at Royal Holloway, University of London. His latest book, The Dark Side of Transformational Leadership, explores how manipulative leaders can sometimes exercise total control over their followers. Dennis has been interviewed on all the main UK news programmes including Radio 4’s World at One, Sky News, BBC, ITV and BBC World News, to provide expert commentary on a case that has fascinated and appalled the public.

Macey break down the barriers between these fields to encourage a broader understanding of how an organization’s environment affects its functioning and performance.
