Assembled and introduced by an international editorial team of leading scholars in the area, each volume builds on the foundations of the last. Volume one traces the evolution and current state of theoretical developments in organizational discourse studies, showing how its methodological foundations have evolved with the social sciences as a whole. Volume two teaches the reader the key techniques used in discourse analysis in organizations, and volume three provides examples of empirical studies where these methods have created an understanding of specific organizational phenomena, including emotion, humour, change and resistance.
