Product Description

Nishant Uppal is an associate professor at Indian Institute of Management Lucknow. He is a fellow in management in organizational behaviour and human resource management from Indian Institute of Management Indore.

Duryodhana was a man of strong character and integrity.
Duhsshasana was respectful, generous and kind towards women.
Shakuni was a simple man who loved his subjects unconditionally.
Dhana Nanda, Aurangzeb and Hitler possessed admirable leadership traits.
'Duryodhanization' refers to the birth and processes of development of a villainous character-whether in works of history or mythology. In this book, Uppal ekes out the dark side of management and leadership by studying fascinating characters from the Mahabharata. He probes into what it really means to be a villain, and if villainous traits are inherent or cultivated.
Original and thought-provoking, the book draws from history, mythology and literature, and unpacks the process of villainization through the character of the legendary villain, Duryodhana.

It's interesting to read an amalgamation of mythology and modern social sciences to understand people's characterization in literature and historyWhenever we come across the word "villain", we consider it to be the character who tends to have a negative effect on others. Such characters are not always fictional, we all know such people even in real life. But whenever we come across such a person, we always wonder: "Why are they so?" We know that a person is not born a hero or a villain . . . Duryodhanization gives us a unique insight into the subject, about which not much has been written. It is indeed an excellent work and a must-real for allA book that helps us in deconstructing villains from the Mahabharata to help us understand modern-day equivalents! Who would you juxtapose with Duryodhana?
