Summary: Reflecting its author's extensive experience in the classroom, this beautifully crafted text expertly balances current theory and research with practical skills and applications. Its presentation reflects the author's belief that small group communication is best understood in context--whether in the workplace, in neighborhoods, in churches, social groups, or civic organizations. The thoroughly updated seventh edition cites more than one hundred recent studies.
