This volume brings together a group of leading academics from Europe, North America and Australasia to address a question of considerable contemporary concern: the nature and management of knowledge in relation to rapidly changing arenas of theory and practice. The contributors reframe management as a dynamic, creative and versatile field of knowledge that is both multidisciplinary and multi-contextual. The book provides a structured and informed set of readings for management educators as well as students and academics in the fields of critical management, organisational behaviour, human resource management and management development.
