'This is the book we've been waiting for, and for so long. A psychoanalytically inspired and politically informed look at contemporary organisational life which takes us from the mysteries of the New York Stock Exchange via Calisto Tanzi (Italy's Robert Maxwell) to the dynamics of envy in professional associations. How rarely one comes across someone who can integrate Bion, Lacan and Klein with critical social and organisational theory to produce an accessible book of vital contemporary relevance. This book signifies the coming-of-age of Bion's belief in the creative and disruptive possibilities of a psychoanalysis anchored in the life of the group.' - Paul Hoggett, Professor of Politics and Director of the Centre for Psychosocial Studies at University of the West of England. 'Susan Long chronicles Enron, Palamat, and many other corporations to identify the underlying psycho-dynamics of perverse organizations. These exist not only because of key role-holders' narcissism and greed, but also because of their ability to spin corporate narratives to sustain their lies and deceit. When the whistle is blown and the hubris fails, employees are caught in the fallout of the collusive conspiracy and, ultimately, lose.' - W. Gordon Lawrence, Managing partner of Social Dreaming Ltd, Visiting Professor, University of Northumberland, Newcastle
