Succeeding Jim Taylor’s widely read publication, The Emergent Organization: Communication as Its Site and Surface, this new book has been conceived as a more accessible version of Taylor’s theory on the role of language in organizing. It provides a synthesis of the various lines of research on constituting organizations through communication.

Contributors to the volume include practitioners and scholars, and the editors present ideas and analyses for ease of understanding. Definitions and explanations of sophisticated issues are included for readers who may not have a thorough understanding of the subject area.

This book is intended for use in advanced seminars and graduate courses, and will appeal to individual scholars, and researchers in organizational communication, organizational psychology, and management.
