Toward Transracial Communication. Center Monograph Series, No. 1.
Smith, Arthur L., Jr.
This monograph attempts to explore and explain communication between different racial groups within the scope of existing communication theory. The question of race and culture as variables in effective verbal interaction is again raised. No solutions are presented but basic problems are pointed out. An account of some characteristics of transracial communication in the attempt to understand the constraints and pressures of interracial communication is given. Concepts such as ethnic groups, recurring linkages, structurization, and normalization are used. (Author/JW)
