Review quote

"The idea of gathering together emerging theories, with an articulation of their core assumptions, propositions, and practical applications is a good one. There is a good variety of essays collected here. The theme--rather than topic--of emerging theories is quite important and this theme is one of the strongest features of the volume." -- Gerry Philipsen, author of Speaking Culturally: Explorations in Social Communication
