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.
