Critical Management Perspectives on Information Systems
Previous writings on â€˜critical' approaches to information systems are fragmented. This text provides a coherent set of reference points for students and researchers to see the issues at levels of theory, method and practice as well as presenting a fuller picture of the different approaches that come under the â€˜critical' umbrella. The review section at the end of the book applies a â€˜critical' voice to the materials discussed in the preceding chapters.
The book consists of a collection of chapters from an international array of experts. They are lead researchers in the field and provide valuable insights for those studying and researching in the areas of information systems and general management, especially from a critical perspective.
