Human Communication: The Basic Course provides an in-depth look at the fundamental concepts and principles of human communication. Writing for students with little prior background in the discipline, author Joseph DeVito provides the foundation needed for more specialized study of interpersonal, small group and organizational communication, as well as public speaking.
The 14th Edition emphasizes cultural issues, reflecting the crucial role of culture and intercultural differences in all forms of human communication. New Cultural Map features illustrate and explain cultural differences on a wide variety of issues. And new summary tables and bulleted lists throughout the text summarize major sections, making it easier to review and retain key information.
