This collection provides a range of essays both canonical in, and at the cutting edge of, communication theory. Selections included provide in-depth theoretical analysis and theoretical overviews rather than specific study of phenomena within a given theoretical tradition. The set represents communication theory in a fashion cognisant with the breadth of communication - nonverbal and verbal - that takes place within the universe. However, there are also special sections devoted to language and media.
