Review of the hardback: 'The Economics and Sociology of Management Consulting is a landmark publication. Professor Armbruster's book is a superb analysis of the consulting sector, convincingly demonstrating why it has grown so large, the dynamics of competition between firms, and the nature of relationships between clients and consultants. In so doing, Armbruster achieves the highly impressive feat of demonstrating how economic and sociological theories, so often seen as incompatible, can be deployed in a complementary way to gain richer insights than any one theoretical lens can provide. It is a book for scholars, practitioners and for anyone interested in understanding why management consulting plays such a prominent role in contemporary business life.' Tim Morris, Professor of Management Studies, University of Oxford
Review of the hardback: 'The debate about management consulting has rarely encompassed the theories that the social sciences afford us in order to make sense of the world in which we live. This book shows us how recent ideas from economics, sociology and other disciplines can help us understand the dynamics of the consulting market, the structures and strategies of consulting firms, and the interaction between consultants and their clients. Anybody who is seriously interested in the consulting sector - academics, consultants, and practicing managers alike - will learn from the insights contained in this very fine book.' Ansgar Richter, Chair of Management and Consulting, European Business School, Oestrich-Winkel, Germany
