Market Power and Business Strategy consists of seven modules, not chapters. Chapters, says Morris, imply a linear approach to learning and strategy. His book calls for a circular approach. Readers can begin the book anywhere, and will find after finishing it that the effect on their understanding is cumulative. Not only will they get a new way of considering individual functions within the organization, but they will also be struck by how these functions can be combined. They key is in the operating system. It's common to all functions, but because of the way Western thought has developed, the commonality has become hidden. Morris uncovers it by examining in detail the two ways of thinking, Western and Eastern, pluralistic and unitary, and compares them in the contexts of marketing, human resource, finance, and other "resources" that exist within organizations.
