Publisher Comments:

This text introduces students to a select set of leading theories in the communication field and demonstrates how these theories apply to their lives. Chapters group theories coherently so that students can compare and contrast different approaches to particular interests in the field (for example: relationships, performance, language and mass communication).

This third edition includes a new chapter on postmodern thinking and its influence on the field, plus new material on critical race theory and white studies, third-wave feminism and multicultural feminism, and technological determinism. Wood teaches humanities at the University of North Carolina. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
