Leading management scholar, John Hendry provides a lively introduction to the nature and practice of management. Tracing its development over the last century, he looks not only at what managers do, but also provides an insight into modern management theory, considering the influences of national and organizational culture, the relationship between power and domination, and managing in different cultures.

This is an ideal introduction for anyone interested in, or studying, business and management.

About the Series:
Oxford's Very Short Introductions series offers concise and original introductions to a wide range of subjects--from Islam to Sociology, Politics to Classics, Literary Theory to History, and Archaeology to the Bible. Not simply a textbook of definitions, each volume in this series provides trenchant and provocative--yet always balanced and complete--discussions of the central issues in a given discipline or field. Every Very Short Introduction gives a readable evolution of the subject in question, demonstrating how the subject has developed and how it has influenced society. Eventually, the series will encompass every major academic discipline, offering all students an accessible and abundant reference library. Whatever the area of study that one deems important or appealing, whatever the topic that fascinates the general reader, the Very Short Introductions series has a handy and affordable guide that will likely prove indispensable.
