We live in a society dominated by corporations. Whether working for one or pursuing leisure activities run by one, corporations have come to resonate throughout every aspect of our lives.
This book brings to the forefront contemporary and contested themes and issues about corporate life. Each chapter is written by a leading scholar who demonstrates how these issues and themes have been contextualized and theorized within writing and research.
Each chapter supports the reader with an introduction and summary, review of the relevant literature and research, and a critique of how the theme under discussion fits into the bigger picture presented by the book.
Understanding Corporate Life is of interest to students and researchers in the areas of organizational studies, organizational behavior, HRM as well as sociology, social psychology, social theory, leisure studies, media and cultural studies.
