520    "The Work of Communication: Relational Perspectives on 
       Working and Organizing in Contemporary Capitalism revolves
       around a two-part question: "What have work and 
       organization become under contemporary capitalism and how 
       should organization studies approach them?" Changes in the
       texture of capitalism, heralded by social and 
       organizational theorists alike, increasingly focus 
       attention on communication as both vital to the conduct of
       work and as imperative to organizational performance. Yet 
       most accounts of communication in organization studies 
       fail to understand an alternate sense of the "work of 
       communication" in the constitution of organizations, work 
       practices, and economies. This book responds to that lack 
       by portraying communicative practiceś as opposed to 
       individuals, interests, technologies, structures, 
       organizations, or institutionś as the focal units of 
       analysis in studies of the social and organizational 
       problems occasioned by contemporary capitalism. Rather 
       than suggesting that there exists a canonically "correct" 
       route communicative analyses must follow, The Work of 
       Communication: Relational Perspectives on Working and 
       Organizing in Contemporary Capitalism explores the value 
       of transcending longstanding divides between symbolic and 
       material factors in studies of working and organizing. The
       recognition of dramatic shifts in technological, economic,
       and political forces, along with deep interconnections 
       among the myriad of factors shaping working and organizing,
       sows doubts about whether organization studies is up to 
       the vital task of addressing the social problems 
       capitalism now creates. Kuhn, Ashcraft, and Cooren argue 
       that novel insights into those social problems are 
       possible if we tell different stories about working and 
       organizing. To aid authors of those stories, they develop 
       a set of conceptual resources that they capture under the 
       mantle of communicative relationality. These resources 
       allow analysts to profit from burgeoning interest in 
       notions such as sociomateriality, posthumanism, 
       performativity, and affect. It goes on to illustrate the 
       benefits that investigations of work and organization can 
       realize from communicative relationality by presenting 
       case studies that analyze (a) the becoming of an idea, 
       from its inception to solidification, (b) the emergence of
       what is taken to be the "the product" in high-tech startup
       entrepreneurship, and (c) the branding of work (in this 
       case, academic writing and commercial aviation) through 
       affective economies. Taken together, the book portrays 
       "the work of communication" as simultaneously about how 
       work in the "new economy" revolves around communicative 
       practice and about how communication serves as a mode of 
       explanation with the potential to cultivate novel stories 
       about working and organizing. Aimed at academics, 
       researchers, and policy makers, this booḱ';s goal is to 
       make tangible the contributions of communication for 
       thinking about contemporary social and organizational 
       problems."--Provided by publisher.
