Communication As...Perspectives on Theory is a collection of 27 essays by leading thinkers in the field of communication theory. Each author in the volume has chosen a particular stance on communication and forwarded it as a primary or essential way of viewing communication with decided benefits over other views. The chapters in the book are brief, argumentative, and forceful; together they explore the wide range of theorizing about communication, cutting across all lines of traditional divisions in the field.
