Each chapter examines a specific aspect of destructive organizational communication, reviews existing theory and research about that communicative form or ideology, suggests fruitful possibilities for application, and suggests key areas for further study. As such, the book opens a dialogue among communication scholars that explores destructive communication in organizations and addresses the following key components:

the central issues and concerns regarding destructive organizational communication,current scholarly contributions to both applied and theoretical understanding of these issues,approaches to integrate applied/experienced and theoretical/conceptual perspectives in ways that inform one another and improve organizational considerations for varied stakeholders, andsuggestions for a future research agenda for those interested in ameliorating the destructive side of organizational communication.
