The Handbook of Intergroup Communication by Howard (University of California, Santa Barbara, USA) Giles

The Handbook of Intergroup Communication brings together research, theory and application on traditional as well as innovative intergroup situations, exploring the communication aspect of these groups. The volume is organized into four domains - cross-disciplinary approaches to intergroup study; types/processes of communication between groups; communication between specific group types; and arenas in which intergroup communication takes place. Editor Howard Giles worked with an internationally-based advisory board to develop and review content, and the contributors included here represent those scholars doing innovative and well-regarded work around the globe. The intergroup umbrella integrates and transcends many traditional conceptual boundaries in communication (including media, health, intercultural, organizational); hence the Handbook will appeal to scholars and graduate students not only in the core area of intergroup communication itself, but across varying terrains of study in communication and beyond, including intergroup relations and social psychology.


The Handbook of Intergroup Communication provides the reader with a concrete understanding of intergroup communication. The book is not only awealth of information on the micro level but also an effective blend of applications that facilitate one's understanding on the macro level; and it is both of these together that demonstrate the complexity of intergroup communication and its ubiquity in our society. -- Vann Morris, Journal of Communication ...The Handbook of Intergroup Communication provides a comprehensive and engaging account of this field of research. Moreover, the Handbook offers a good sense of not only where the field has been but also where it may be profitably headed. -- George B. Ray, Journal of Language and Social Psychology
