As work regimes are continuously moving towards post industialism, forms of communication change with them. Avoiding yet another handy recipe book for effective managerial communication, this book positions communication inside this historic development of work and management and shows how this development has led to the instrumental use of communication, informed by the distinction between those who manage and those who are managed and and directed towards the control and system integration of the workers.
THOMAS KILKAUER is a Senior Lecturer at the School of Management in the College of Law and Business, University of Western Sydney, Australia.
