This edition of Looking Out,Looking In PDF retains the elements that have made it the bestselling interpersonal communication textbook for over four decades, used by over one million students.
Virtually every page spread contains an attention-grabbing assortment of materials that support the text: articles from print and online sources, poetry, cartoons, photography, and profiles of popular films and television shows.
Looking Out, Looking In Book presents communication not as a collection of techniques we use on others, but as a process we engage in with them.
The discussion of gender and culture is integrated throughout the book, rather than being isolated in separate chapters. The treatment of these important topics is non-ideological, citing research that shows how other variables are often at least as important in shaping interaction. The basic focus of the chapters has remained constant, and Chapters 2 through 11 can be covered in whatever order works best for individual situations.
