Edited by:

March 2010 | 488 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

As the only multi-paradigmatic collection of research in the field, this Handbook brings together a comprehensive range of essays to serve as a fully inclusive resource. Deanna L. Fassett and John T. Warren, along with two section editors and twenty-nine additional contributors, provide a balanced overview of various paradigms in the field—social scientific, interpretive, and critical.

Key Features

  • Three sections, addressing overlapping issues in communication and instruction, collectively represent multiple paradigms. This allows the reader to experience the depth and nuance available in communications studies.
  • Each perspective is granted its own foundational chapter to provide an orientation to the discipline.
  • Each contributor sets the agenda for their approach, helping the reader identify where the field is headed and where future research might be beneficial.
  • Besides reviews of extant literature, demonstrating where the field has been, this Handbook also includes chapters that share topical new findings.
