About this book


Repositioning Organization Theory studies the political positioning of organization theory. The book argues that there are two main projects in organization theory: the hegemonic project of positioning and postmodern project of depositioning. To critique the theoretical and political limits of these two projects, Böhm employs a range of critical and post-structural philosophies. Having conceptualized the need for a 'political event', the book is a passionate call for repositioning and repoliticizing organization theory. This book discusses the impossibilities of, and strategies for, such a project.
