Series: State of the Art in Business Research
Management and organizational history has grown into an established field of research with competing and contrasting approaches and methods that are relevant for management and organization studies.
This shortform book provides readers with expert insights on intellectual interventions in management and organization history. The authors illuminate the central ideas, works and theorists involved in forming the link between history, management and organization studies, particularly focusing on the debates addressing the need for an `historic turn’ in management and organizational studies.
With coverage of nascent schools of thought in management historiography, such as ANTi-History, revisionist history, counter-history, rhetorical history, the Copenhagen School, microhistory, critical realist histories, alongside existing modernist and post-modernist approaches, as well as postcolonial, decolonial and feminist critiques, the book is essential reading for scholars and students of the role of history in management and organization studies.
