Notes: "The idea for this book was conceived after a conference organised by the Norwegian School of Management in Oslo in March 2001 on the theme of Niklas Luhmann's autopoietic theory and organization theory. From that conference a special issue was prepared of 'Nordiske Organisasjonsstudier.' Whereas the contributors to that issue were all Scandinavian, other colleagues, notably from Germany and Britain, have since joined us in the effort of producing this edited volume."--Preface, p. 5.
