`Palmer and Hardy are.. certain to inform and challenge.' - Industrial Relations Journal

`This book is rich and thought-provoking in content and alert in its approach. It cleverly demonstrates that the field of management is a patchwork of ideas' - Leadership and Organization Development Development Journal

This radical text presents central management questions that managers and students need to work with and understand. Key debates in management theory are taken out of their academic setting and discussed in relation to management experience. Exercises, examples, illustrations and summaries bring the problems and dilemmas alive for the student. From people management to organizational culture; leadership to learning; institutional power to individual innovation; the multi-faceted territory of management is explored and opened up.
