Abstract and Keywords
The enormous increase in what has come to be known as critical management studies has clearly been demonstrated. Going from theoretical innovations through to empirical and historical inquiries, the resultant research has transformed our understanding of many aspects of management and its functioning. Although starting with pioneering studies in the areas of philosophy, political economy, and sociology, more critical inquiries have now penetrated many of the traditional areas of management research, creating in the process new understandings and providing very different vocabularies with which to interrogate and analyse a diverse array of management practices.
