Conflict Communication

Edited by Kristin Leigh Davis

Paperback ISBN: 978-1-60927-864-9, 234 pages


Conflict Communication is a unique anthology in the field of interpersonal communication that comprises both scholarly articles and book chapters from the disciplines of human communication, psychology, marriage and family therapy, and business. Organized thematically, the readings cover interpersonal conflict from theory to research to future directions and offer a broad knowledge base in the field of conflict communication. Furthermore, the reader is introduced to the darker side of interpersonal conflict through selections on abuse, intimate partner violence, and bullying. This book is an excellent choice for required reading for an upper-level undergraduate conflict course, as well as for supplementary reading in a graduate-level course.
