In Cross-Cultural Management, the author takes a critical, power-sensitive and culturally-aware perspective that moves beyond the paradigms debate, placing greater emphasis on the holistic nature of culture and its managerial consequences and taking into account the diversity and multiple identities apparent in cross-cultural management.

Conceived by Chris Grey as an antidote to conventional textbooks, each book in the `Very Short, Fairly Interesting and Reasonably Cheap' series takes a core area of the curriculum and turns it on its head by providing a critical and sophisticated overview of the key issues and debates in an informal, conversational and often humorous way.

Suitable for students of cross-cultural management, human resource management or workplace diversity and professionals working in organizations and intercultural training.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'An engaging, entertaining and readable introduction to a complex subject; essential reading both for people new to studying cross-cultural management and for academics and professionals looking for a good critical overview of the field.' -- Professor Fiona Moore

The book manages to get across a critical cross-cultural perspective in a useful, relevant and not overcomplicated way that conveys current knowledge to a wide readership...not just critical scholars [but] anyone doing management in today's diverse and global environments. In this respect the book works well, and I really wish I had written it. But I don't think I could have written it as well as Jasmin Mahadevan.

-- Terence Jackson
'Much research has overlooked that cross-cultural management contexts are intertwined with power issues. Jasmin Mahadevan has a multi-ethnic and multi-lingual background that sensitized her to the important roles of ethnicity, language, gender and religion. Her insightful and thought-provoking introduction to critical CCM enables students and practitioners to uncover cultural diversity in multiple contexts and reflect upon their use of various CCM tools and viewpoints.'
-- Professor Anne-Marie Soderberg
'Drawing on various disciplines, Jasmin Mahadevan builds a compelling case for an approach to cross-cultural management that takes culture and power seriously. Written in a highly accessible style, this book offers the reader an invaluable theoretical compass to navigate the complexity of contemporary organizational realities.'
-- Professor Patrizia Zanoni
'This small book is quite an achievement. If you are interested in critically examining cross-cultural management studies, with expert guidance from a key scholar in this area, you will find Professor Mahadevan's very readable book indispensable. It is rare to find a book that can appeal to student, experienced academic and international manager. This accessible book has achieved that.' -- Professor Terence Jackson
