For students of language, communication, and organizations, François Cooren has written a terrific introduction to organizational discourse analysis. His review of six discourse approaches is bolstered by his extensive research in the field and his goal to help readers understand the organizing potential of language. This organizing potential is key to knowing how organizations are communicatively constituted. The writing in this book is clear, accessible, and inviting. I highly recommend it!
Gail Fairhurst, University of Cincinnati
This volume provides a superb integration of six discourse perspectives interwoven with the thread communication constitutes organization. It not only explicates these approaches but also employs each of them in exemplars of enacting coorientation and organizing, performing identity and culture, and negotiating decisions. Overall, it is an ideal text for teaching organizational discourse analysis.
