Organizational Communication 1976: Abstracts, Analysis, and Overview.
Falcione, Raymond L.; Greenbaum, Howard H.
A contribution to the literature on organizational communication, this book has three objectives: to provide access to information on recent literature in organizational communication; to develop a classification system for the literature; and to provide abstracts of the literature published in 1976. The introductory chapter comments on the year's literature and furnishes a sub-classification system for each of the book's nine major categories of organizational communication. The nine categories are as follows: interpersonal, intragroup, and intergroup communication in organizations; communication factors and organizational goals; skill improvement and training in organizational communication; communication media and communication system analysis in organizations; and texts, anthologies, reviews, and general bibliographies. Each classification is further specified by the type of publication. Research methods and limitations are discussed in the appendix, and indexes include information on authors and on type of organization and data collection instruments involved in the field studies.
