Описание: 'Makes fascinating reading and at the same time provides a good grounding in the study of the language of organizations, both for those who know little of the
area and for those who are looking for a comprehensive overview of the field. Overall I would warmly recommend this book as an asset for students and teachers of organizational

both academics and students. Advanced undergraduates and postgraduates will utilize this book for any course dealing with communication, particularly courses in HRM and
