Nonverbal Communication Systems.
Leathers, Dale G.
This book was designed to meet five specific criteria which allow development of a course parallel to the treatment of the book's subject matter, active student involvement in testing and developing their own nonverbal communication capacities, delineation and analysis of the functional capacity of different nonverbal communication systems, an integrated treatment of the functional relationships between and among the nonverbal communication systems and of the interaction of these systems with verbal systems, and intensive examination of nonverbal communication behaviors through extensive and creative illustrations. Chapters in the book cover the study of nonverbal communication; the kinesic communication system, proximate and urban environments; the artificial, vocalic, tactile, olfactory, and telepathic communication systems; observing, classifying, and measuring the quality of nonverbal communication; and nonverbal and verbal communication systems. A bibliography and author and subject indexes conclude the book. (JM)
