Reviews

'A very timely book...the focus on the multi-faceted nature of the social and behavioural changes that are allied to communication processes is impressive' - Jaan Valsiner, Professor, Department of Psychology, Clark University, USA

'...The Social Psychology of Communication is rich in differing and often even competing theoretical perspectives and practical applications, and yet it also manages to be a book of singular purpose...the reader will jump back and forth between agreement, objection, and wonder. When this occurs, the book has accomplished its goal.' Psychology in Society
