(This book) is a clearly written and well-documented review of social communication theory, and an alternative to texts which focus primarily on the psychology of interpersonal communication and tend to exclude the social perspective on understanding interpersonal communication. Leeds-Hurwitz provides a welcome addition to introductory texts on the study of human communication. (This) is for teachers who have searched for an introductory textbook which presents a comprehensive argument for a social interactionist perspective on communication in a way understandable to students. Most refreshing is that Leeds-Hurwitz does not talk down to the reader, integrates (not just cites) original sources, and illustrates the concepts with ethnographic research...Mark Kuhn, University of Maine, Orono in Communication Education
