Postmodern Management and Organization Theory

Edited by:


February 1996 | 424 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
This thought-provoking critique of postmodern theory provides an overview of issues as they relate to management and organization theory and its history, and assembles a variety of important works on postmodern philosophy - including feminist and cultural postmodern philosophies. Addressing the future of the postmodern influence on management and organization theory and method, the book also establishes an agenda for future research.
