Editors: Roger H. Yablonski
Book Description:
This new book focuses upon communication as a tool for doing the work of social life--how, why, and with what consequences people exchange messages. It examines the modes and technologies of communication (mass-mediated, computer-mediated, spoken, written, nonverbal); the contexts and settings of communication (cultures, organizations, institutions, groups, families, interpersonal relationships); how communication skills are acquired; and how communication shapes societies and cultures.
