Forensics as Communication: The Argumentative Perspective.
McBath, James H., Ed.
This book is based on the taped proceedings and papers presented at the National Development Conference on Forensics. Part I discusses the foundations of the conference. Part 2 discusses the conference recommendations concerning a definitional statement, future goals and roles, theory and practice, research and scholarship, and professional preparation, status, and rewards. Part 3 includes the three keynote speeches to the conference, which deal with the issues of forensics, research needs in forensic communication, and the assessement of value judgments on forensics. Part 4 includes position papers and responses, while part 5 discusses some of the achievements of the conference. An appendix provides a timetable of major events; lists of criteria for electing task force assembly participants, task force participants, the conference planning committee, special rules of the action assembly, and conference policies; a schedule; and a summary of the leadership conference.
