Providing a thoughtful balance of theory and practice, Nonverbal Communication: Studies and Applications, Fifth Edition, offers students an engaging, sophisticated, and up-to-date introduction to the field. Nina-Jo Moore, Mark Hickson, III, and Don W. Stacks, use examples from everyday life and television to help students understand how nonverbal communication affects the real world. The authors discuss many interesting topics that are not usually covered in nonverbal communication texts-including body alterations, biofeedback, and olfactics-and take a unique "sensory" approach to nonverbal communication (i.e., they examine how the five senses process nonverbal communication signals). They begin with a discussion of the sense of touch (rather than physical appearance, the typical starting point of most nonverbal communication texts) and then lead into the study of space, the sense of sight, the sense of hearing, the sense of smell, and finally, the use of time. Consistently demonstrating the applications of theory while emphasizing the research basis of nonverbal communication, Nonverbal Communication, Fifth Edition, is ideal for nonverbal communication courses in either communication or psychology departments.

Review quote

"I really, really like (!!!) the increased focus on individual application of contemporary research. Keeping in most (not all) of the classic research and providing an 'application orientation' will help my students in terms of their understanding of the material and their individual research projects."--Christopher Pudlinski, Central Connecticut State University"What I like best is the heavy emphasis on sensory experiences--that is, on how nonverbal behavior arises from the senses. I really like this approach and find it to be intuitively appealing to my students. I also really like the use of contemporary examples, and I am thrilled to see a section on olfactics, which is something I have been asking publishers to include in a nonverbal book for years."--Kory Floyd, Arizona State Universityshow more
