Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I've used the Miller book in this course now for many years. I've done so because it is a skillful representation of where the field has been and where it is at. Kathy does an amazing job weaving in representative classic research from the field along with contemporary sources and new developments. Second, I think the book is highly readable. Kathy is an excellent writer and is able to convey complex theoretical ideas and research in language accessible to our undergraduate students."

"I like several things about the book. First, it provides a pretty balanced approach between theory and practical issues. Each chapter typically includes theoretical/scholarly approaches to Org Comm, and also includes practical information, as examples or case studies. Second, the book is written in a very concise manner. Each chapter of the Miller book can be broken up into relatively short, but information heavy reading segments. So our busy students don't have to read extra-long chapters to get much foundational information. Finally, the book effectively covers most of the critical Org Comm issues, both foundational issues and more contemporary issues."
