Drawing on interviews with eight key figures in the field, this book provides guidance for how to theorize, and how to do so well, using the key tools of the theorizers. Learn More

    The Political Constitution of the Corporation

    Alexander Styhre

    Handbook of Research on Management and Organizational History

    Edited by Kyle Bruce
    Emerging from what was a somewhat staid sub-discipline, there is currently a battle for the soul of management and organizational history (MOH), at the centre of which is a widespread concern that much recent work has been more about how one should or might do history rather than actually doing historical work. If ever there was a time for a new volume on MOH, this is certainly it. Learn More

    Edited by Premarajan Raman Kadiyil, Anneleen Forrier, Michael B. Arthur
    Career Dynamics in a Global World takes on a major question in the global research and practice of career development and adopts a distinctive approach in response. The authors address the question of how and to what extent a predominant influence of Western thinking about careers interferes with our understanding of careers in other parts of the world. The approach involves identifying career topics for further exploration, recruiting teams of Indian and Westerns scholars on each topic to share their insights, and laying out those insights to help both careers researchers and practitioners see their significance.
