An introduction to critical management research

Kelemen, Mihaela and Rumens, Nick (2008) An introduction to critical management research. Sage, London. ISBN 9781412901871. [Book]


Why have certain theories shaped management research? Where do research theory and practice meet, if at all?

To ask these questions is to think critically about management research. Mihaela L Kelemen and Nick Rumens explore the fundamentals of critical management theory and their influences on management research, and in doing so offer the student an illuminating introduction to what is often a disparate and complex array of issues.

10 expressive chapters examine theoretical foundations, including those most often sidelined in mainstream management theory; from postmodernism and deconstruction to American pragmatism, along with methodological choices and the intellectual issues each of these presents. Also provided is a timely consideration to the consequences and ethical concerns now inherent to any research issue.
