Best books on management?

Could anyone advise on some good books on management? I'm looking for something more "technical" or academic. Please avoid bestsellers: 7 HoHEP, Dare to Lead, Leaders eat Less, etc.

I'm looking for something more relevant for business school (with cases preferably).

Thanks.

So your not really looking for books on management, but books on business/strategy/case studies? When you say management I think of people, organization and process.Β  When you say "business school (with cases preferably)" I think of case studies with cross functional analysis that includes technology, process, bizdev, strategy, sales, marketing, finance, people, organizations, etc.... Can you narrow it down?Β

The books by Amy Suh really helped me when moving into management. She writes for HBR so if you like that style of writing, you will be able to take in her books quickly.Β

High Output Management and Measure What Matters are all I needed. They teach the same general principles because Doerr was a student of Grove's. I understand you said no best sellers, but they are bestsellers for a reason.Β 

As previously stated Peter Drucker has a few decent books.Β Β
