A Reader in Speech Communication.
Gibson, James W.
The essays collected here fall into five categories: responsibilities and ethics in speech communication, communication foundations and practice, creativity in speech communication, informative and persuasive speaking, and communication settings. These essays do not explain how to speak in public but rather deal with the purposes of speech, as well as other issues. The book is designed as a supplement to speech textbooks for college students.
