    Nonverbal Communication Research: Readings and Applications features cutting-edge, interdisciplinary readings that both familiarize students with the basics of nonverbal communication, and provide them with an accessible but in-depth look at social scientific research on nonverbal social interaction. The selected readings include peer-reviewed studies on specific nonverbal codes, and essays on the nature and applications of the current body of research on nonverbal behavior.

    The book is organized into three sections. The first addresses the basics of nonverbal communication, and provides an overview of the basic elements of nonverbal communication, including nonverbal communication in intercultural contexts. The second is devoted to specific nonverbal codes, such as physical appearance, bodily movement, facial expressions, and interpersonal distance. The third section discusses applications of nonverbal communication research, including the long-term effects of nonverbal attractiveness, and how speakers and listeners can make the best use of nonverbal communication in interview settings. Additional topics include the role of touch in social and personal relationships, and the literal “look of love.”

    With readings drawn from diverse fields of study, Nonverbal Communication Research can be used in undergraduate or graduate-level courses focusing exclusively on nonverbal communication, as well as courses featuring nonverbal behavior in specific contexts, such as those in psychology, sociology, counseling, and business.
