More About Organizational Communication by Linda L. Putnam; Kathleen J. Krone
 
 
 
Overview
The field of organizational communication has mushroomed in the past three decades. Originally viewed as a spin-off from management and organizational psychology, organizational communication is now a major area of research, education, and practice.

Studies in organizational communication focus on the messages, meanings, patterns of communication, discourse, and symbols as they aid in defining the nature of organizations. In effect, organizational communication scholars study the dynamic interplay between communication processes and human organizing.

This volume assembles in one collection the major works that form the building blocks of organizational communication studies. It chronicles the development of the field through articles that were influential in setting agendas and charting the course of research. Focusing on both mainstream and innovative topics, these volumes contain major works that cross five main arenas of the field, divided as follows:

Volume 1: History and Theoretical Perspectives-- covering articles that review the history of the field and formative studies on communication systems;

Volume 2: Communication Patterns, Structures, and Images -featuring articles that center on communication networks, media, technology, and organizational images;

Volume 3: Relational and Identity Issues-focusing on communication studies of leadership, socialization, identity, and organizational change;

Volume 4: Participation, Power, and Gender-centering on issues of democracy, control, resistance, and diversity; and

Volume 5: Cultures, Globalization, and Discourse-including studies of communication and culture, discourse, and emotions.

No other collection contains such classic and field defining works that represent the central currents of the field. This set is an essential reference volume for students, researchers and scholars in organizational communication, management, organizational sociology, administration, and organizational behavior.
