Praise for the First Edition:

`[I] recommend this book to anyone who is seriously interested in organizational communication.... It is a unique and outstanding work.... Researchers in the area will find this work extremely pertinent to their activities' - Journal of Applied Systems Analysis

The Handbook of Organizational Communication, like the original, is a landmark in the field of organizational communication. The handbook provides a more up-to-date analysis of the latest advances in this exciting field. It assists in establishing a clear identity of this discipline that has grown tremendously over the latter part of the century. The contributors, pioneers in the field, provide a more multidisciplinary perspective drawing equally from the fields of organizational behaviour, management studies and communication.

An essential resource for researchers, teachers, professionals, and advanced students in organizational communication, management, organizational behaviour, and organizational studies this handbook provides:

§ An historial overview of organizational communication as a discipline

§ More than half the chapters explore topics not included in the original handbook

§ Part 1 examines methodological issues as well as theoretical ones, including quantitative and qualitative research methods and language/discourse analysis.

§ Each chapter not only reviews and updates research in its respective area but also included discussions of research and theory from around the world.
