The literature on critical approaches to, and perspectives on, organisation and management is heavily outweighed by conventional managerialist literature. Access to critical literature is also often difficult. This page attempts to provide information on currently available critical literature. For books, a weblink and the ISBN (normally for paperback edition) is provided, where possible; where a book has been re-issued by different publishers, details shown are normally for the earliest publication.
