Book DescriptionThe Family Communication Sourcebook provides an in-depth examination of contemporary theory and research in the area of family communication. It frames current research practices and approaches with a historical overview of how the field developed. The authors, whose work is spotlighted in this volume, find their disciplinary home in the field of communication. Thus, the book focuses specifically on how communication presents a unique window into family practices as well as shapes scholars' definitions and approaches to family. The book is divided into four sections to fully map the area of family communication: - Defining and Interpreting the Family; - Theoretical and Methodological Considerations; - Internal Family Dynamic; - External Structural Frameworks.

Author Biography - Lynn H. Turner
Lynn H. Turner (Ph.D., Northwestern University) is Professor of Communication Studies in the College of Communication at Marquette University. Her research areas of interest include interpersonal, gendered, and family communication. She is the co-author or co-editor of over 10 books as well as several articles and book chapters (many with Rich West). Lynn has served in a number of different positions: Director of Graduate Studies for the College of Communication at Marquette University; President of the Organization for the Study of Communication, Language, and Gender (OSCLG), President of Central States Communication Association (CSCA), and Chair of the Family Communication Division for the National Communication Association. In her free time, Lynn delights in babysitting for her grandchildren. Richard West (Ph.D., Ohio University, 1991) is Professor of Communication Studies at Emerson College. He received his BA and MA in Communication at Illinois State University. Rich is the co-author (with Lynn Turner) of several leading books in communication (Perspectives on Family Communication/4th ed; Interpersonal Communication/2nd ed; IPC/1st ed; Introducing Communication Theory/5th ed; Gender and Communication/3rd ed;) and served as co-editor of the Sage Sourcebook of Family Communication. He is the author/co-author of over 40 articles and essays and he has participated in over 100 NCA programs. Rich's work has appeared in Communication Quarterly, Communication Education, Qualitative Research Reports in Communication, Communication Reports, Journal of Family Communication, among others. He has served as Guest Co-Editor of the Journal of Family Communication twice and has been a member of nearly 10 journal editorial boards in communication. Rich's work intersects family, identity, and culture. Yet, he admits to being somewhat of a 'scholarly nomad,' exploring a number of different topics, including gay parenting, holiday stress, student questions in the classroom, job burnout, among other areas. Rich is the recipient of several recognitions, including Outstanding Alumni in Communication awards from both Illinois State University and Ohio University. ISU has also recognized him as a "Distinguished Alum" in Forensics and as an "Outstanding Alum in Teacher Education." He has also been recognized as an ECA Research Fellow and was the recipient of ECA's Past President's Award. In 2012, the Communication Institute for Online Scholarship named him a "Leading Scholar in Communication Education." He has served as President of the Eastern Communication (2008) and the National Communication Association (2012).
