Communication: An Introduction offers a thorough, yet lively, examination of all aspects of human communication, including:

• a detailed analysis of all the levels of communication;
• a description and overview of the different traditions of communication studies;
• a consideration of the future of communication - as a phenomenon and as a field of research.
