Those familiar with this textbook will note a number of changes from the sixth edition, which will enhance student understanding of organizational communication. One major change is a brand new chapter considering constitutive approaches (Chapter 5). Ideas regarding the communicative constitution of organization (CCO) have become increasingly important in our discipline in recent years, and I decided that these developments deserved a chapter-long consideration in this new edition. Chapter 6 has also been revised to consider feminist approaches as distinct from critical theory. In addition, all of the chapters have been updated to include current research and theory, leading to the addition of well over one hundred new references, with particular emphasis on current events and contemporary research conducted by communication scholars. The seventh edition of Organizational Communication: Approaches and Processes continues from the first six editions many features that are designed to develop students’ abilities to integrate and apply the material. The seventh edition continues to include the “Spotlight on Scholarship” features, highlighting specific research that illustrates concepts considered in the chapter—six spotlights are new to this edition. I have retained other pedagogical features from earlier editions, including explicit links among the “approach” and “process” chapters, learning objectives at the beginning of each chapter, key concepts at the end of the chapters, tables and figures to illustrate key concepts, and case studies to apply conceptual material to real-life organizational communication situations. One of my favorite features of this textbook—the “Case in Point” feature that began in the fourth edition—continues in the seventh edition. One of the most fun tasks during this process of revising the textbook has been discovering and writing about current events that reflect a variety of concerns about organizational communication. There are many new “Case in Point” features in this revision, as well as some from the previous editions with which I couldn’t part.
