Organization and Management: A Critical Text goes beyond the descriptive and managerial accounts of organizational behaviour. It offers a more critical and reflective text which contextualises and criticises conventional wisdom and attempts to re-orient the field by offering alternative approaches to the study of organizational behaviour. The authors take account of historical developments and key issues and ideas in their social, political, economic and global context. Areas examined include labour process issues, gender and other identities, flexibility and globalisation. More recent post-structuralist and post-modern approaches are also explored.
