ABSTRACT
Attempts to define the study known as organizational communication have generally had little success in achieving professional consensus. Authors usually ask, "How can we define this area?" Knapp asks instead, "How can we categorize the writing and research on organizational communication?" His answer may offer some insight into the nature and dimensions of the subject.
