Summary

Brings together a group of leading academics from North America, Europe and Australasia to address a question of considerable contemporary concern - the nature of management knowledge in relation to rapidly changing arenas of theory and practice. The contributors examine the relationships between theory, management education and managerial practice as complex exchanges that bring theory and practice together.
