The scholarly book titled, Critical management studies in South Africa: Directions and contexts, has been published by AOSIS Scholarly Books.
This book shows how Critical Management Studies (CMS) scholarship is starting to develop a character of its own in South Africa. It attests to CMS slowly gaining momentum and acquiring an identity of its own amongst South African scholars. However, management studies in South Africa is dominated by capitalist ideology and positivist methodology.
Although Interpretive scholarship has gained some momentum, it still falls within the parameters of ‘mainstream’, capitalist thinking. Scholarship outside the domain of capitalist thinking, such as critical scholarship, remains sorely underexplored. Being entrenched in the positivist tradition is arguably a major Achilles’ Heel for the progression of management as a field of inquiry.
This book is promoting CMS to the scholarly community, to show that there are exciting possibilities being offered by a different approach to management scholarship. Read more.
