Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Key Features for Nonverbal Communication includes:

  • Emphasizes nonverbal codes as well as the functions they perform to help readers see how nonverbal codes work with one another and with the verbal system through which we create and understand messages.
  • Covers nonverbal communication from a multi-disciplinary perspective and includes theory and research from communication, psychology, linguistics, anthropology, family studies and sociology.
  • Devotes two separate chapters to the social and biological foundations of nonverbal communication to show readers how nonverbal communication is influenced by biological needs and characteristics as well as social effects.   
  • Provides complete, contemporary coverage of deception in human communication, addressing readers’ interest in nonverbal concepts and furthering their skills in assessing credibility of messages and individuals.
  • Numerous applications and examples presented in each chapter help bring the material home to readers in a concrete and relevant way.
  • Intuitive and fresh organization of the book first provides an overview and introduction, then places nonverbal communication within the context of the cultural and bio-evolutionary influences that shape it,  giving readers a deeper understanding of how and why we communicate the way we do.
  • Related codes are grouped together, making in-class and outside-class activities easier to devise because interrelated codes are studied together.  

Synopsis:

Drawing significantly on both classic and contemporary research, Nonverbal Communication uses modern examples to illustrate nonverbal communication in readers' lived experiences. This new edition, authored by three of the foremost scholars in nonverbal communication, builds on the approach pioneered by Burgoon, Buller and Woodall which focused on both the features and the functions that comprise the nonverbal signaling system. Grounded in the latest multidisciplinary research and theory, Nonverbal Communication strives to remain very practical, providing both information and application to aid in comprehension.
