Overview

Foundations of Nonverbal Communication: Readings, Exercises and Commentary by Albert M. Katz

Complete with exercises and introductions to put the readings in perspective, this is an introductory anthology designed for the student of nonverbal communication.

One of the primary objectives of the edi­tors was to provide an introduction to some of the seminal work in the field’s respective subdisciplines because most nonverbal com­munication texts refer to these works. To that end they have provided complete arti­cles, chapters, or at least substantial Seg­ments of classic works. These works include selections from Birdwhistell, Ekman and Friesen, Hall, Jourard, Montagu, Morris, Scheflen, and Trager.

The collection is divided into seven parts. These are “Proxemics: The Utilization of Space,” “Kinesics: Action Behavior,” “Facial and Eye Behavior,” “Haptics: Touching Behavior,” “Object Communication,” “Paralanguage: Vocal Communication,” and “Put­ting It All Together: The Encoding, Decod­ing, and Interpretation of Message Patterns.”
