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 purchased this book for my current class in Communication and Conflict Management. It is easy to read and the font is a reasonable size.

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.
