Four social scientists from the University of Western Sydney explore management and organizations today, along with their theories and practices, as the 2008 worldwide financial crisis continues, from a perspective that questions much of the intellectual trappings of neo-liberalism. They cover what is wrong with business education, the Larrikin Principle, managerialism, neo-liberalism and its discontents, corruption, power versus goodness at the edge of chaos, soft capital and the informal polity, and culture and organizations in a global world. Distributed in the US by ISBS.
