A Comprehensive Look at Human Interaction

Human Communication in Society takes an enhanced look at the relationship between humans and their societies through a contemporary critical lens. By examining history and societal structures as a means to assess modes of human communication, the text helps readers to understand the theory and context of the way people interact. The Fourth Edition uses new examples, illustrations, and pedagogical materials to highlight the importance of understanding multiple perceptions when studying communication. By addressing vital forms of communication such as listening, responding, verbal/non-verbal communication, and perception, Human Communication in Society addresses the subject of interpersonal interaction from a holistic standpoint.
