African American Communication : Exploring Identity and Culture - 2nd edition

African American Communication : Exploring Identity and Culture (ISBN10: 080583995X; ISBN13: 9780805839951)
ISBN13: 978-0805839951
ISBN10: 080583995X

Summary: This book provides a cultural analysis of African American communication from the perspective of the group. Emphasis is given to the identity, rules, and strategies that characterize communication for group members. It is a look from within African American culture. Group-specific cultural data are used along with culturally-sensitive social psychological theory to provide an analytical framework for group behaviors. Analytical constructs were selected because of the
ir congruence with African American life and culture. The book also provides an extensive review of the literature and recommendations designed to assist in understanding African America communication in a context, which extends beyond the Eurocentric paradigm. This second edition of African American Communication improves upon an already well-received, award-winning book. This edition has added a full chapter on African American relationships, including gender, familial, intimate, friendship, and workplace relationships. Also, the literature has been updated with the latest statistics on African American financial and social well-being. The audience for this volume includes advanced students and scholars in intercultural and interpersonal; communication theory; African American/Black studies; social psychology and sociolinguistics; education; and family studies. Policymakers and community leaders may also find the book of interest.
