Format: Paperback
In this edited book, the chapter authors present an excellent scholarly look at complex organizational processes underlying the "dark side" of organizational life. I have used chapters from this book in senior seminars on organizational communication and my students respond very well. The chapters are accessible but also grounded in sound scholarship.

I'm not going to pretend like I actually read this textbook... because I didn't. I cracked it open and read one chapter. There are definitely better textbooks on communication in correlation to organizations and business. The author could have done condensed a whole lot of the information.
