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.

About the Author:

I hold a PhD in applied economics from the Academy of Economic Studies in Bucharest and a DPhil in Management Studies from Oxford University. I came to Keele in 1996 and was promoted to Chair in 2006. I am course director for the MA in Management/International Business and a member of the executive team responsible for the postgraduate provision in the school.

Review:

′Any form of research becomes a daunting task because of the sheer body of knowledge that one has to test one′s theory against. The good part is that the authors have succinctly brought all these alternative theories together in one book. This saves reseach time and gives an understanding of each theory before it can be tested against research findings...Every researcher must test their knowledge empirically. this book becomes an important part of that quest, and is a foundation before one sets out to theorise their findings.′
