Men as Managers, Managers as Men

Critical Perspectives on Men, Masculinities and Managements

by Collinson, David L; Hearn, Jeff R;

Description
`The great classic theories of management have taken it for granted that management (hierarchy) and hegemonic masculinities (gender) intersect. This book is the first to break the silence and subject the taboo to scrutiny' - Silvia Gherardi, University of Trento

This book examines the processes through which gendered managerial structures, cultures and practices are reproduced. It provides new insights into how managements and masculinities may reinforce each other, and explores the ways in which both management and men might be changed, even transformed.

Most managers in most organizations in most countries are men. This book is the first international work to address the relationships between men, masculinities and managements. It examines the processes through which gendered managerial structures, cultures and practices are reproduced. Exploring top and middle managers, entrepreneurs, corporate executives, and public and private sector managers, the book breaks new ground by critically examining the gendered power processes that have largely been assumed and ignored by conventional organizational and management theory.

As well as providing new insights into how managements and masculinities may reinforce each other, this challenging book ultimately explores the ways in which both management and men might be changed, even transformed.
