Arguments, Aggression, and Conflict : New Directions in Theory and Research Paperback / softback
Edited by Theodore Avtgis, Andrew S. Rancer
Arguments, Aggression, and Conflict provides a thorough examination of argumentative and aggressive communication.
Editors Theodore A. Avtgis and Andrew S. Rancer bring together a score of prolific and informed authors to discuss aspects of the conceptualization and measurement of aggressive communication.
The book features an exclusive focus on two "aggressive communication" traits: argumentativeness and verbal aggressiveness, one of the most dominant areas of communication research over the last twenty five years both nationally and internationally.
The chapters include cutting-edge issues in the field and present new ideas for future research.
This book is a valuable resource for instructors, researchers, scholars, theorists, and graduate students in communication studies and social psychology.
Covering a variety of topics, from the broad-based (e.g. new directions in aggressive communication in the organizational context) to the more specific (e.g. verbal aggression in sports), this text presents a comprehensive compilation of essays on aggressive communication and conflict.
