Summary

Analysing emotions and emotion-management in the academic organization, Passion and Paranoia shows how focusing on emotions in organizations can offer insights into important aspects and the dynamics of organizational processes. Drawing on rich interview material, this book demonstrates the often-overlooked importance of emotions in academic life, to reveal the manner in which emotion contributes to social bonds, power-relationships and hierarchies, micro-politics and processes of inclusion and exclusion from an academic career. A significant contribution to the study of emotion and the academy, Passion and Paranoia will appeal to sociologists and anthropologists researching work and organizations, emotion, academic culture and social relationships.
