Front Cover
Mark L. Knapp, Gerald R. Miller
SAGE Publications, 1985 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 768 pages
Knapp and Miller present the first comprehensive review of the state-of-the-art in interpersonal communication research. The Handbook of Interpersonal Communication is a definitive reference source, authored by an outstanding international group of communication researchers. While the contributors take diverse conceptual, theoretical, and epistemological approaches to the study of human communication, several common themes run throughout the book: a focus on behaviour, a focus on time, a focus on social cognition, a concern with control, and a concern with individual differences.
