The new edition of Nonverbal Communication, Fourth Edition, features: * A greatly enhanced applications orientation: The text now integrates applications throughout each chapter. "Observational Studies" provide opportunities for students to either work with or experiment with each theory discussed, and "Questions to Ponder" at the end of each chapter give students further experience applying what they have learned. Expanded individual applications of contemporary and historical research findings are also included. This approach eases instruction as students learn to gauge how much they really know about nonverbal communication--and how to apply it to real-world situations. * A More Conversational Writing Style: This edition is written as if the authors were carrying on a conversation with their readers. There are more examples and fewer studies cited than in earlier editions. * Controversial Issues of the Day including tattooing, body piercing, plastic surgery, and botox are covered. * New Coverage on Gender and Intercultural Issues is integrated throughout the text. * Glossary of Terms: The new edition features this helpful reference for students. * Expanded Coverage of Contextual Applications including work, family, and social contexts. * More Extensive Media Applications: There is new material on advertising, public relations, broadcasting, journalism, and impression management. Nonverbal Communication: Studies and Applications offers complete coverage of the field's basic subcodes: Haptics (touch); Proxemics (space); Physical appearance; Kinesics (human body movement); Oculesics (face and eye); Vocalics (paralanguage); Olfactics (scent and smell); and Chronemics (time usage). An ever-popular feature is the chapter on research methodology. Students will better understand what they are learning if they become aware of the processes that scholars follow in developing theories. The authors conclude with a chapter on the future of nonverbal communication--what we know about the field, its practical implications, and where the discipline appears to be heading.
