Business and management are shaped by both external and internal forces. The external forces are driven by the way society at large views the role of business and management in contributing to the social goals. The internal forces are driven by the changing nature of management thinking and research. These forces raise important recurring debates: should private corporates be left to their own devices or should there be monitoring and channelization of their activities? How intrusive should the state be in this respect? How to communicate more effectively within the organization and to the outside world? How to create new markets for basic survival as well as for completely new products?
This series will critically examine some of these themes and issues which have acquired urgency in the contemporary world. It will deal with currently relevant topics with the richness that they deserve and simultaneously eschew fashionable jargon to present lucid and rigorous studies with sound theoretical foundations. The individual volumes will be comprehensive and authoritative resources and will explore major debates from fresh perspectives on economics, management, international business, public policy, development studies and finance.
