`Re-Framing Strategy: Power, Politics and Accounting' in which they
make the case for a critically informed approach to studying
strategy in the special issue of Accounting, Auditing &
Accountability Journal (Vol 23, Issue 5) Praise for Strategy:
Theory and Practice "Finally, something different in a strategy
text! This new volume provides a broad view of strategy covering
the conventional as well as less mainstream alternatives like the
growing strategy-as-practice perspective. It also does a great job
of providing balanced critiques of the existing orthodoxy and
provides explicit connections to some of the more accessible
academic articles providing more depth to the arguments presented.
All in all, it is an excellent break from the unfortunate tendency
to make strategy a narrow economic enterprise in a world that is
far more complex and social than that. Strategy: Theory and
Practice is a welcome addition to the available texts on strategy"
- Nelson Phillips, Professor of Strategy and Organizational
Behaviour Co-Editor, Journal of Management Inquiry "A super and
overdue book. It embraces the central importance of organization
theory and, especially, the play of power and politics both inside
and outside the organization. This erudite, almost polemical book
promises to redraw how we approach the study of strategy - and not
before time!" - Royston Greenwood, Associate Dean, School of
Business, University of Alberta "It explains where strategy
originates from and how contemporary ideas and practices facilitate
or constrain decision-making and action. In particular, this book
illuminates the role of power and politics in strategy - an issue
that has been overlooked in most textbooks in this area. Enjoyable
and inspiring reading for students, researchers and practitioners"
- Eero Vaara, Professor of Management and Organization Dean of
Research Hanken School of Economics, Helsinki "The authors have
managed to produce a unique and admirable combination of critical
external engagement with 'strategy', understood as a complex object
of organizational and political construction, and a useable
insiders text book rich in illustrative cases. As such it is
essential reading for academics, students and practitioners - all
of whom will discover how theory and practice are more intertwined
than they ever imagined" - Michael Power, Professor of Accounting,
London School of Economics and Political Science
