Argumentative and Aggressive Communication by Andrew S. Rancer

Book Description

Research and study in argumentative communication has been one of the most dominant lines of communication research for the past two decades. Argumentative and Aggressive Communication is the first book entirely devoted to the theory-building, research and application issues on aggressive communication. In addition to fully describing the two predispositions and their measurement, it synthesizes the large corpus of research in several communication contexts, including family, organizational, intercultural, instructional and mediated contexts. It provides prescriptions for managing aggressive communication in these contexts. A final chapter provides conclusions drawn from this literature, as well as offers suggestions for future work on aggressive communication.
