This volume provides an integrated overview of communication study for the student. In preparing to teach introductory graduate courses, the authors could not find a single text that provided both theoretical coverage of the broad scope of communication study, as well as a text that integrated the theory with the research. This book puts theory into research and explains how research operates within theory. To explicate the integration process, the chapter contributors-experts in their respective areas-offer samples in the form of hypothetical studies, published studies, or unpublished research, showing how theory and research are integrated in their particular fields.
