Summary

Representations of business, management and organizations in popular culture are overwhelmingly negative. Why does this happen when the representation of economic outlaws in popular culture is almost always romantic? Martin Parker investigates the strange absence of cultural studies from the world of management in an illuminating and entertaining style. With chapters discussing the likes of Robin Hood, the Mafia and Captain Jack Sparrow, Parker offers a fresh and exciting insight into the counter culture of the outlaw ' ; one that rebels against the more dominant and traditional forms of economy and organization and celebrates a life free from wage slavery. Alternative Businessis a highly readable, entertaining book that will prove a helpful study tool for all students and lecturers working in organizational or cultural studies.
