Uniquely, this book positions communication inside the 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 directed towards the control and system integration of the workers.
THOMAS KLIKAUER is a Senior Lecturer at the School of Management in the College of Law and Business, University of Western Sydney, Australia.
