Beschreibung

Research and study in argumentative communication has been one of the most dominant lines of communication research for the past two decades.

Argumentative and Aggressive Communication is the first book entirely devoted to the theory-building, research and application issues on aggressive communication.

In addition to fully describing the two predispositions and their measurement, it synthesizes the large corpus of research in several communication contexts, including family, organizational, intercultural, instructional and mediated contexts. It provides prescriptions for managing aggressive communication in these contexts. A final chapter provides conclusions drawn from this literature, as well as offers suggestions for future work on aggressive communication.

Pressestimmen

"This is the first book to discuss the history, research and application of the positive and deleterious communication traits of argumentation and verbal aggressiveness. The handbook's clear style makes it accessible to any intelligent, motivated, critically analytical reader or educated layperson: from undergraduates and graduates, to teachers and researchers on any level, to those in the applied world, such as practicing psychologists and, of course counselors, managers, and politicians. Even secondary and tertiary school teachers ought to convey certain information to their students to prepare them for life."
