The Handbook of Group Communication Theory and Research establishes a central resource for the field, documenting and synthesizing the work done in group communication's 50-year history. With contributions from the most experienced and respected scholars in the field, the editors present an overview of group communication study and examine a variety of theoretical positions and methodological practices.The volume is divided into six broad areas of communication scholarship: foundations of group communication theory and research; individuals and group communication; task and relational group communication; group communication processes; group communication facilitation; and group communication contexts and applications. The sections serve as a crossroads where various paths pursued in each area meet and summarize and suggest new maps and roads that need to be followed in the future.
