When we began this review of The monstrous organization, we encountered an uncommon reading of organizational theory and life, populated by monsters, fantastical creatures and deviant bodies. The novel account of Thanem’s Monstrous organizational theory caused us to reflect as we approached this text. The according of relevance to monstrosity has not aroused the same curiosity in Western authors, with certain fields of studies allocating greater prominence to monsters and Monstrous aspects of life than others. The guiding question for our analysis was inspired by this disparity: why, within Western culture, do images of monstrosity abound in literature, paintings, architecture, and cinema, whilst scant interest has been directed towards Monstrous bodies and creatures in organizational theory and management studies?
