Summary Read First Chapter image missing

"This book represents a clearly-focused vision about where the field of organizational communication is going. I know of no collection of essays that provides the depth, breadth, and intellectual clarity that this book does." -- Anne M. Nicotera, Howard University

New Approaches to Organizational Communication brings together three major conceptual developments. First, it sheds new light on standards used to evaluate processes and practices of organizational communication. Second, individual chapters delineate new, vital mechanisms of organizational communications. Third, the book outlines the practical consequences of these new mechanisms of organizational communication.

"The range of topics covered is broad and reflects important concerns in current organizational communication research. It defines key directions in which future organizational communication research should go. It considerably expands the range of topics covered in organizational communication. This will be quite useful to researchers and graduate students alike. I know of no volume with similar coverage or range. The scholarship is sound and the works cited are current and important. The book introduces readers to whole new domains of literature that are quite relevant to organizational communication research." -- Marshall Scott Poole, University of Minnesota, Twin Cities

Branislav Kovacic is Assistant Professor of Communication at the University of Hartford.
