This inter-disciplinary approach to the subject of non-verbal communication includes essays by linguists, zoologists, psychologists, anthropologists and a drama critic. It begins with a theoretical analysis of communicative processes written from the perspective of a communications engineer, compares vocal communication in animals and man, and includes two sections of essays, one on communication in animals and one on non-verbal communication in man. The latter includes essays concerning children, the mentally ill, and a cross-cultural perspective, among others. (JK)
