Organizational Communication: Abstracts, Analysis, and Overview. Volume 5.
Falcione, Raymond L.; Greenbaum, Howard H.
The objectives of this book are to provide a general structure for students, scholars, and practitioners to obtain comprehensive information on recently published and unpublished literature in and related to the field of organizational communication; to continue to develop a classification system for the literature of interest to that field; and to provide abstracts of that literature for the year 1978 in the form of annotated bibliographies. Following an overview chapter that discusses the nature of the organizational literature written in 1978, the second chapter of the book contains abstracts of approximately 400 books and dissertations, and the third chapter contains abstracts of more than 300 articles, papers, and United States government publications. The abstracts in each chapter are arranged into nine classifications: (1) interpersonal communication, (2) intragroup communication, (3) intergroup communication, (4) communication factors and organization goals, (5) skill improvement and training, (6) communication media, (7) communication system analysis, (8) research methodology, and (9) texts, anthologies, reviews, and general bibliographies. The book also contains an appendix that discusses research methods and limitations, and indexes for author, type of organization studied, and data collection methods used in the studies. (FL)
