This introduction to the basic concepts in human communication provides a theory-based overview of the communication studies discipline and helps students develop strategies for becoming better communicators. Substantially revised, the third edition focuses on communication research and theory from a social science perspective, and emphasizes communication in practice, both in everyday life and in the workplace. Fundamentals of Human Communication is not intended for courses in which the text is meant to support an extensive public speaking/performance component.
