Diana K. Ivy, Texas A&M University–Corpus Christi
Phil Backlund, Central Washington University
GenderSpeak: Personal Effectiveness in Gender Communication is an examination of the attitudes, gender identities, and stereotypes that characterize communication in relationships, with the ultimate goal of improving communication between the sexes.
Focused on communication about as well as between women and men, this practical and readable text connects material to students’ everyday lives. GenderSpeak provides students with a balanced approach to the study of gender communication, presenting current research and a variety of perspectives and sources, while avoiding slant or bias.
A clearly articulated treatment of organizational communication, "Organizational Communication" utilizes interviews to explore communication and misunderstandings at all levels of the organization. This book offers a unique perspective on the field of internal organizational communication. The authors review the foundational material, but intersperse the discussions with excerpts from interviews conducted with more than 100 leaders and workers in a variety of organizations. Unlike other books in this field, "Organizational Communication" explores organizational communication from the perspective of "all" organizational members, not just management.
