What People are Saying About This
Much of the most important - even the most useful - contribution to Management Studies in recent years has come from critical theorists. However, there is a problem with their language. Because they have had something new to say, they have often resorted to new words or phrases, or new uses of existing words and phrases, to make their point. A tradition of playful use of language has exacerbated this problem for those new to the field. This book will give newcomers an insight into the language of critical management studies, as well as suggesting how to follow up on concepts. It will be equally useful to those of us who have been around for a time but have never cracked some of our colleagues' codes.' - David Sims, City University, UK
