The Family Communication Sourcebook provides an in-depth examination of contemporary theory and research in the area of family communication. It frames current research practices and approaches with a historical overview of how the field developed. The authors, whose work is spotlighted in this volume, find their disciplinary home in the field of communication. Thus, the book focuses specifically on how communication presents a unique window into family practices as well as shapes scholars' definitions and approaches to family.
The book is divided into four sections to fully map the area of family communication:
- Defining and Interpreting the Family;
- Theoretical and Methodological Considerations;
- Internal Family Dynamic;
- External Structural Frameworks.

"There is no question that this volume represents the best, most up-to-date compendium about family communication available to advanced students in various disciplines, especially family therapists who desire a substantive background for their practice. There are extremely relevant topics that deserve the attention of family-oriented scholars, researchers, and clinicians. There is no question, in my opinion, that this volume is a substantial contribution to the field of family communication. Once could go as far as asserting that it constitutes a milestone in the evolution of theories, models, and research not only in the field of communication but also in the sociological and psychological study of the family."
