This text responds to current content and discipline issues by being rooted in communication scholarship and by addressing and integrating issues of social diversity. The book provides a theoretically unified and pragmatically oriented approach to human communication (i.e., a good balance of theory and skills); it consistently integrates issues of social diversity into both theoretical foundations and discussions of skills and particular communication contexts. The text provides students with an understanding of theory by showing them how they can apply communication to their own lives.
