Designed for introductory courses in communication, human communication and speech communication, this text surveys the broad field of communication, including intrapersonal, interpersonal, small group and organizational, public, intercultural and mass communication. The book is divided into seven parts, each of which is introduced by a unit titled "Preliminaries", giving readers a firm grasp of research, theory and skills. The sixth edition features new coverage of critical issues, such as sexual harassment (Unit 18), and key topics such as self-concept and self-esteem (Unit 3). A supplementary pamphlet, "The Public Speaking Guide", focuses on the skills of effective public speaking. Interactive pedagogy, helping students master both theory and skills, adds cohesion to the text's presentation.
