This text addresses the implications of postmodernist/poststructuralist ideas for organizational analysis. The first part of the book aims to provide a comprehensive introduction to postmodernist thinking in the context of organization studies. Contributors then examine a range of organizational themes from postmodernist perspectives including deconstructive organizational research, use of metaphor in organizational analysis, postmodern interpretations of motivation theory, and issues of gender and inequality in organizations. The last part of the book provides critical analysis as well as support for postmodernist organizational theory, asking whether it implies neglect of the central issues of power, control and change in a globalizing world. This text is suitable for academics and advanced students in organization theory, organizational behaviour, sociology and psychology.
