Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Summarizes the important and promising emerging theories of human communication.

This book summarizes the important and promising emerging theories of human communication that go beyond received traditions. It includes essays on emerging theories of communication and culture; relational communicative competence; conflict communication; communication and peace; agenda setting and the role of mass media in democratic political processes; new rhetoric and new social movements; and communication and management of public-sector competitiveness.

"The idea of gathering together emerging theories, with an articulation of their core assumptions, propositions, and practical applications is a good one. There is a good variety of essays collected here. The theme--rather than topic--of emerging theories is quite important and this theme is one of the strongest features of the volume." -- Gerry Philipsen, author of Speaking Culturally: Explorations in Social Communication

Contributors to this volume include Deborah Blood, Dudley D. Cahn, Donal Carbaugh, Ron B. Cullen, Donald P. Cushman, William A. Donohue, Timothy Gibson, Gerard A. Hauser, Trudy Milburn, Hiroshi Ota, Jiro Takai, Susan Whalen, John M. Wiemann, Mary O. Weimann, and Jian H. Zhu.
