about

This fascinating and controversial text makes sense of the complexities of research in the workplace and how 'working' knowledge is constructed. Featuring experts from Britain, Japan, North America and Australia, it is an outstanding contribution to the literature of Human Resource Management (HRM). It's interdisciplinary approach addresses key issues and debates such as:
* the influences of new technology, language, power, culture and gender upon the 'construction' of knowledge
* the impact of globalization
* working knowledge into the 21st century
* practice and performance implications.
It's outlook, geared towards the 21st century, makes it essential reading for researchers, teachers and students within HRM, policy-makers and all those concerned with professional development.

'[This book includes] rich and rewarding discussions of an area of learning outside mainstream educational theorising. I have no hesitation in urging anyone interested in traversing the territory that business and education now have in common, to purchase this book. They will not be dispappointed and will find much that is stimulating and provocative in its pages.' - Studies in Continuing Education 'This text investigates the twentieth-century obsession with information and research, exploring what constitutes worthwhile and important knowledge ... such a study has has an extraordinary bearing on the study of popular culture.' - Tara Brabazon - Years Work in Critical Cultural Theory
