Description

In Case Studies in Culture and Communication: A Group Perspective, James A. Schnell presents critical essays in the burgeoning field of communication studies. Topics covered include prank-playing and conflict resolution in a college fraternity; the impact of introducing an Afro-centric perspective into American children's education; and the role of the hospital chaplain in facilitating communication between patients and their medical team. Focusing on group dynamics rather than one-on-one interactions, this book demonstrates the broad relevance and applicability of communication studies.show more
