Exceptional. Current. First-rate. Comprehensive. Accessible. Well- researched. These are some of the adjectives that have been regularly applied to the highly regarded earlier editions of Building Communication Theory. Now updated, the Third Edition of this widely used volume continues to present introductory students with a solid foundation in basic communication theory. While other textbooks are removed from practical experience, Building Communication Theory provides a sense of currency and immediacy that makes communication theory engaging. Infante, Rancer, and Womack's first-rate presentation incorporates several distinctive features: presents complex material in clear, interesting, and user-friendly prose; helps readers see the connection between theory and practical applications by using realistic examples; emphasizes the complementary relationship of theory building and research in the discipline; reviews the basic concepts and trends in particular areas of research followed by more in-depth examination of selected theories; studies theory under the frameworks of the laws, human action, and systems perspectives; illustrates how to question, test, and become a critic of theories; includes intercultural, family, political, and health communication as contexts of communication theory; includes extensive, 20-page glossary.
