Material type: materialTypeLabelBookSeries: Sage library in business and management. Publisher: Los Angeles Sage Publications 2011Description: xix, 187 p; vi, 551 p; vi, 679 p; 187 p.ISBN: 9780857023759.Subject(s): Corporate managementDDC classification: R 658.4 Summary: It could be said, as we enter the second decade of the 21st century, that critical management studies is in disarray. Examining the often overlooked negative aspects of organization and management, the interpretive nature of the critical approach means that the very claim of being 'critical' is constantly questioned and challenged. From Marxist labor process theory, to radical structuralism and postmodernism, the sheer volume and growing diversity of work placed under the umbrella of critical management studies has increased exponentially in the last 50 years, culminating in its own international conference and division in the Academy of Management, and with it recognition as a significant and hotly contested territory on the landscape of business and management.
