In English speaking countries, most critical researchers consider themselves a part of the relatively well-structured school of thought: Critical Management Studies. This book sets out to study all facets of this school, including works that are not overtly “critical,” with particular attention to field surveys and applied analysis. Finally, this inventory of critical management studies aims to question the critical research done in this field and demonstrate its limits.
Jean Nizet holds a PhD in sociology and is a professor emeritus at the University of Namur and the Catholic University of Leuven in Belgium.
