Organizations, Markets and Imperial Formations: Towards an Anthropology of Globalization184844317X, 9781848443174
Description:This book explores the nexus between organization theory, globalization and imperialism and examines the effects produced by a global order organized around development and markets. The authors explore how interconnections between organization theory, the shift to markets and globalization have led to the perpetuation of inequality and active reconfigurations of life, labour and the economy. They contend that cultural ethnocentrism and Western ideologies of development continue to inform the field of organizational studies and offer an alternate mode of theorizing. Through theoretical and empirical reflections, the authors produce a patchwork quilt of innovatively critical approaches to globalization.
