This book brings to the forefront contemporary and contested themes and issues about corporate life. Each chapter is written by a leading scholar who demonstrates how these issues and themes have been contextualized and theorized within writing and research. Each chapter supports the reader with an introduction and summary, review of the relevant literature and research, and a critique of how the theme under discussion fits into the bigger picture presented by the book.

About the Author:

André Spicer is an Associate Professor of Organisation Studies at Warwick Business School. His research focuses on how globalisation is achieved and resisted in and around organisations. He is investigating (1) the implications of globalisation for public broadcasters, (2) the organization of global social movements and (3) responses by organised labour to restructuring initiatives driven by globalisation – particularly in the port industry. Underlying this empirical research is a theoretical commitment to understanding globalisation as discursively negotiated process of re-scaling space. André has lectured in New Zealand, Australia, Sweden and Russia. For further information see: http://andre.spicer.googlepages.com/home

Review:

′Taking a fresh approach, this volume digs into the interstices of corporate life. It opens up dimensions and issues - such as time, space, speed and community - that are largely unexamined in standard textbooks′ -
Hugh Willmott, Professorial Research Fellow in Organizational Behaviour, Cardiff University and Fellow in Organisational Behaviour,
Judge Business School, Cambridge

′The life and death of contemporary corporations become more and more mysterious to wider audiences, in spite of the fact that these creations densely populate today′s societies. In this book, a team of experienced organization theorists does an excellent job in bringing to light both bright and dark sides of complex organizations operating in the time of crises and transformation. This collection will prove indispensable for all those students, researchers and practitioners who look beyond the tired platitudes of conventional organization and management textbooks′ -
Barbara Czarniawska, Professor of Management Studies,
University of Gothenburg
