Perspectives on Communication: Colloquium Proceedings.
Larson, Carl E., Ed.; Dance, Frank E. X., Ed.
This book is a collection of fourteen papers presented at the communication colloquium of the University of Wisconsin--Milwaukee, during the 1967-68 academic year. The essays have been organized into three sections. Section I: "General Perspectives on Communication" contains presentations which are addressed to basic theoretical and conceptual issues in the field of communication theory and research. Section II: "Communication Theory and Persuasion" contains papers in which the principal focus is on the nature or study of attitudes. Section III: "Communication in Specific Interaction Contexts" contains papers which attempt to employ communication concepts to describe or explain situationally based behavior. Topics of the papers include: studies of communication and interpersonal behavior and analyses of the communication process (in Section I); approaches to audience analysis and current studies of attitude change through persuasion (in Section II); and reports on the communication process as it operates in such contexts as complex organizations, family groups, conflict situations, and intercultural situations (in Section III).
