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
