What isn't management and why doesn't it matter? This compelling book leads the reader away from the stories told by managers and management theories to show the secret history of the field. In characterizing the progress of management as a war on workers, this book offers a controversial and revealing alternative intellectual history of this overwhelming discipline. The author employs a unique range of theories and sources, including the founding fathers of management, US labour and social history, and earlier intellectual figures such as Marx and Weber alongside the contemporary insights of Foucault and European and American workerist and post-workerist thought, to shed light on the world of management. This book is key reading for researchers and students across the social sciences. With a controversial and stimulating approach, it also engages readers with a general interest in business and management issues. Are managers neoliberalism's executioners?

Today's managers are bombarded with a constant stream of management fads and fashions, each claiming to be the key to business success. In this new book Alan Coppin and John Barratt draw on their experience of managing change in the Historic Royal Palaces to show that successful management techniques are timeless, simple and based on common sense. Looking back through history at great leaders and organisations they identify concepts, ideas and applications that have proved themselves over time. They then demonstrate how these techniques are currently being applied to run and secure the future of multi-million pound institutions such as the Tower of London, Hampton Court and Kensington Palace. With a compelling mix of historical lesson and modern application this is an essential read for anyone looking for the essence of good management.

As more and more of the world population live in urban environments what effect will this have on our capacity to meet growing water demands?
