Revised and extended for its second edition, Contemporary Issues in Management provides a unique up-to-date view of the ‘messy reality’ of the complex management dilemmas facing workers and managers in the business environment today.

Using a critical approach, the contributors offer original perspectives on organisational behaviour and the sociology of work. Presenting business case studies and analysis, this textbook covers a broad range of key themes, including ethical and social issues, diversity, migration, continuity and change. Chapters present research studies into diverse areas, from teleworking to apprenticeships, food production, volunteering and factory working.
