About this book

Examining the production of 'people's literature' in China, this study provides a new interpretive framework with which to understand socialist literature and presents a sympathetic understanding of culture from a period in China's history in which people's lives were greatly and obviously affected by political events.

Introduction 1. Narratives of Disorder 2. Perpetual Policing Wars 3. Policing the Globe 4. Power in Policing Wars 5. On Agency: Policing Logics and War 'Without Antagonism' Conclusion

Holmqvist presents an original account of the relationship between war and policing in the twenty first century. This interdisciplinary study of contemporary Western strategic thinking reveals how, why, and with what consequences, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq became seen as policing wars.

'Contemporary liberal thought imagines war as a perpetual policing exercise, in which disorder is made into order. Demonstrating a command of theory few analysts of war can muster, Holmqvist shows how liberalism supplies a set of metaphors an intellectual scaffolding encompassing time, space, agency and power through which war becomes a management tool for the restoration of the social contract in other peoples' countries. While real in its effects, such imagination amounts to an illusory construct of war, with results for all to see in Iraq and Afghanistan. Surpassing earlier analyses of liberal war in depth and sophistication, Holmqvist is now the definitive guide.' Tarak Barkawi, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK 'War without antagonism is one of the great oxymorons for our time. Holmqvist explores the sense in western military theory that war can be fought without ultimate opposition when it is about reducing disorder and policing good governance. Those who resist this oxymoronic post-adversarial logic get branded and punished as obstructionist criminal elements. Holmqvist stretches the concept of contemporary war as a form of policing liberal order by tracing its roots to pre-9/11 times and spaces and by theorising its depths today. She is a compelling and important new voice on the forms, logics and implications of today's western ways of warring.' Christine Sylvester, University of Connecticut, USA JV

This book reveals how 'double-voicing' is an inherent and routine part of spoken interactions within institutional contexts. Baxter's research shows that women use double-voicing more than men as a means of gaining acceptance and approval in the workplace. Double-voicing thus involves an interplay between power, gender and linguistic expertise. JV

Fons Trompenaars; Ranked one of the top 50 Most Influential Management Thinkers in 2013 and co-author of Riding the Waves of Culture - Understanding Diversity in Global Business This remarkable book is a survival guide for business leaders who have found the ground shifting quickly beneath their feet. But more than that it's a logical path forward showing us how to realise distinctive strategies by unlocking the energy of people within the organisation. It's clever and timely. Tony Gillies; Editor in Chief, Australian Associated Press Don't even think of embarking on any strategic change effort without reading this book first! It demonstrates not only why conventional planning has become irrelevant but, importantly, how to see, feel, think, and act strategically in today's fast changing environment. James Sutherland; Chief Executive Officer, Cricket Australia Don't be deluded that strategic planning leads to strategic thinking. If strategic changes are to be realised then this book is a must for those who want to make that happen! Professor Philip Dewe; Birkbeck, University of London Solving the Strategy Delusion hits at the very core of challenges that most organisations suffer from in the current era. Too many organisations continue to plod along with old-fashioned thinking even if the paradigms have changed dramatically around them. This pioneering book delves into the causes of such delusions which occur around the much-exploited term of strategy. The authors present a compelling in-depth, incisive, and to the point view based on their vast industry experience and decades of academic pursuit on the subject of strategy and organisational behaviour. This is a can't-put-down book and a must-read for all CEOs and executives wanting to make a real difference! Sanjay Mathur; Vice President, India & ASEAN, Foseco at the Vesuvius Group Solving the Strategy Delusion is the ultimate why, what, how, who, and when of strategy realisation in the 21st century. It will inspire, energise and give you a foundation from which to make strategy truly happen. Paul Baxter; Chief Executive and National Commander, New Zealand Fire Service Almost all organisations these days claim to have a 'strategy' - it would hardly be fashionable to not have one! But how many of these strategies are delusional, destroy value and organisations? Many - according to this original book from Dr Marc Stigter and Sir Cary Cooper, in which they outline cases where ingrained and delusional models of strategy were held on to, despite their shortcomings. They demonstrate how to avoid delusion and achieve strategic wisdom. Such wisdom means ditching most of the security blankets and conventions that managers and leaders still hang on to, even today, such as command and control, managing by the numbers and through stressed out workers. There are better ways and this book elaborates them! Professor Stewart Clegg; University of Technology, Sydney You are about to read a book that gives a fascinating perspective on how it doesn't work and how it should in many organisations when it comes to strategic change! The examples discussed in Solving the Strategy Delusion on how people react to change or keep holding on to the status quo are very recognisable. But in today's landscape this is not sustainable. Dr Marc Stigter and Sir Cary Cooper explore how to bring new strategies to life and think beyond traditional practices and models. I highly recommend this book to all Forward Thinkers and Doers out there! Rick Denekamp; Vice President, Trade & Commodity Finance, ING Bank, Netherlands Solving the Strategy Delusion is an outstanding reference for realising strategic change in today's complex environment. Zeger Degraeve; Dean, Melbourne Business School; Dean, Faculty of Business and Economics, The University of Melbourne Dr Marc Stigter and Sir Cary Cooper are to be congratulated for highlighting the need for a more holistic view on strategy - to use an Australian colloquialism they call a spade a bloody shovel! I commend them for that. In today's fast changing environment, we are seduced to a world of short termism without proper regard for or a focus on the future. In such a world, strategy is more often than not relegated to an annual repetition of talkfests followed by a plethora of communications of various forms without action or progress. This book challenges conventional thinking and provides invaluable and practical insights that will enable the reader to mobilise their organisation in a manner that will enable them to realise distinctive strategies which will endure. Highly recommended! Darryl McDonough; Former Chief Executive Partner, Clayton Utz Solving the Strategy Delusion doesn't naively claim to provide all the 'answers' but instead serves as a practical guide for you to challenge the status quo and change the way you think, plan, and put into practice strategic change. This is a book you are going to want to keep with you. Grant Rickard; Vice President, Systems Support - Europe, Middle East & Africa, Oracle How do you unlock deep customer insights and realise distinctive strategies? How do you overcome organisational inertia and unleash productive energies? How do you mobilise people who can, know and want to realise strategic change? This remarkable book reveals answers to these questions and in essence shows how to truly strategise from the outside-in rather than inside-out even for biased insiders. Christian Overgaard; President Danfoss China If we're completely honest, most leaders are consumed by the daily battle to ride out the bumps let alone prove we own a confident strategy that will sustain us long into the future. Authors Stigter and Cooper deconstruct the challenges we face inside and out then provide the keys to overcome organisational inertia and unleash productive energies. It's a must. Mick Crowe; Managing Director, G&S Engineering Services Solving the Strategy Delusion is a refreshingly new perspective on strategy and strategic change. We are presented with a systematic questioning on how companies tackle strategy and change, create customer value, mobilise people and exercise leadership, through several types of delusions. These topics are then explored in a sensitive and pragmatic fashion. A 'must read' in the strategic management literature. Rita Cunha; Associate Professor of Global Human Resource Management; Nova School of Business and Economics, Lisbon, Portugal Strategy as we know it won't cut it anymore in today's environment. The authors take us through a compelling journey on how to survive. This book is relevant to anyone with a desire to realising strategic change enduringly! Jonathan Sampson; Regional Director, Hays, Japan The book races through how to create distinctive plans with both the customer and the workforce. The detailed glossary offers a mini-MBA of its own! THE TIMES Book of the Week Written concisely and in an engaging style, Stigter and Cooper have produced a very worthwhile book here on the challenges of modern leadership The Irish Times Stigter and Cooper offer very practical insights how to embed strategy into the heart of the everyday running of a business Elite Business Magazine (UK) JV
