MEDIA REVIEWS
"Making Social Worlds is an exciting and gutsy volume readable by a range of audiences. The focus on critical interaction moments allows intelligent probing communication-based analyses of everything from couples fighting to wars and international relations. The conversational writing style kept me engaged from beginning to end." Stanley Deetz. Professor Director of Peace and Conflict Studies National Communication Association Distinguished Scholar International Communication Association Past-President and Fellow "This is not only a marvelously lucid updating of CMM theory, it also demonstrates the broad applicability of this important conceptual work to problems and potentials of human communication."
