Language of Organization by Robert Westwood

Book Description

The importance of communication for organizations has been an ongoing concern since management was first theorized. Yet language has tended to be viewed as simply a medium of communication - without language per se being theoretically problematized. This book enables a more critical exploration of the major theoretical positions on language and organization, explaining why language warrants a more central and considered place in organization studies. Language and Organization explains how various perspectives on the relationship between language and organization can be represented and explored. Concerned with issues such as power, knowledge and organizational discourse, this book will provide essential new links for a proper conceptualisation and understanding of organizations.

Core-Periphery Relations and Organization Studies by Robert Westwood Core-Periphery Relations and Organization Studies, Hardback (August 2014)

Core-Periphery Relations and Organization Studies draws together postcolonial and indigenous thinking through the conceptual lens of core-periphery relations to advance debate in organization studies. A particular aim of this book is to broaden, deepen and critically reassert a postcolonial imagination in this domain.

International and Cross-Cultural Management Studies by Robert Westwood International and Cross-Cultural Management Studies, Hardback (November 2009)

Drawing on postcolonial theory this text offers a critique of international management.
