When aggression is expressed by means of formal organizational structures, it becomes camouflaged and non-confrontational, and affects mental health. Alexander Abdennur’s observations show people avoiding open discourse, taking segmented positions, and hiding behind organizational structures. After reviewing two universally occurring and challenging developments—complexity and camouflage—Abdennur recommends a cognitive approach for the management of workplace hostility in organizations. Professors and students of psychology, organizational behaviour, and criminology will find this a necessary and insightful resource.

Alexander Abdennur is the director of the Cognitive Centre of Canada in Ottawa and is the author of four books.
