Communication in Organizations: An Annotated Bibliography and Sourcebook.
Carter, Robert M.
Taking the broad range of human communications as a background, this book elaborates upon communication theory and mass media methods to delineate facets of organizational communication. Of major concern are topics in information and systems theory, the types of barriers to communication in organizations, communications both up and down the chain of command and among peers, informal communication channels, methods of change in organizations, and evaluation of organizational intercommunication. A special feature of this book is the consideration of all types of communication media--oral, written, audiovisual, electronic, and nonverbal--from a basic perspective, so that the reader may understand the essential acts he performs when conducting communication within an organization.
