A thought-provoking look at how silence is embedded in our language, society, and institutions. Sexual harassment is explored as an example.

Book News
In the introduction, Clair (communication, Purdue U.) asserts that the title incorporates two distinct yet overlapping meanings: the ways in which the interests, issues, and identities of marginalized people are silenced, and how those silenced voices can be organized in ways to be heard. These are the themes explored in nine chapters on topics such as the use of framing devices to sequester organizational narratives; the bureaucratization, commodification, and privatization of sexual harassment through institutional discourse--a study of the "Big Ten" universities; and artful practices and the aesthetic perspective. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
