This book takes up a question that has rarely been raised in the field of management: “Could modern Western colonialism have important implications for the practices and theories that inform management and organizations?” Employing the framework of postcolonial theory, an international group of scholars addresses this question, and offers remarkable insights about the implications of the colonial encounter for management. Wide-ranging in scope, the book covers major topics like cross-cultural management, control and resistance, corporate culture, the discourse of exoticization in museums and tourism, and stakeholder issues, and sheds new light on the troubling legacy of colonialism.
