The most comprehensive, most readable compendium of research and theory on nonverbal communication available, NONVERBAL COMMUNICATION IN HUMAN INTERACTION uses the cross-disciplinary approaches of speech and social psychology to focus on how nonverbal communication research affects a wide variety of academic interests.
This venerable text is now in its fifth edition. Students and instructors will find updated information and bibliography throughout as well as additional illustrations, but the core of the text remains the same. The material covers the basics of nonverbal communication and its relation to verbal communication, the nonverbal elements involved in any interaction, and a discussion of how these separate elements combine to make an interaction. The authors teach communication and social psychology, respectively. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
