Routledge Companion to Critical Management Studies
The scholarly field of Critical Management Studies (CMS) is in a state of flux. Against a backdrop of dramatic global shifts, CMS scholarship has lately taken a number of new and exciting directions and, at times, challenged older critical voices. Novel theoretical frameworks and diverse research interests mark the CMS field as never before. Interrogating conventional critiques of management and arguing for fresh approaches, The Routledge Companion to Critical Management Studies captures this intellectual ferment and new spirit of inquiry within CMS, and showcases the pluralistic generation of CMS scholars that has emerged in recent years.
Setting the scene for a crucial period for the discipline, this insightful volume covers new ground and essential areas grouped under the following themes:
- Critique and its (dis-)contents
- Difference, otherness, marginality
- Knowledge at the crossroads
- History and discourse
- Global predicaments.
Drawing on the expertise of an international team of contributing scholars, The Routledge Companion to Critical Management Studies is a rich resource and the perfect reference tool for students and researchers of management and organization.
