About the book: For courses in Introduction to Communication. An overview of communication that balances individual and social factors

Human Communication in Society presents a lively overview of the discipline that engages students in exploring the implications of communication in their daily lives. Providing a balance between theory and application, authors Jess Alberts, Thomas Nakayama, and Judith Martin highlight the tension between individual and societal forces and encourage students to recognize the value of multiple perspectives in understanding communication. The 5th Edition has been thoroughly updated to reflect the latest research and to include expanded coverage of social media and LGBT voices.
