This book explores communication between humans and robots. Using a range of communication theories, it highlights how each theory provides a different perspective on the communication that occurs. The analysis of human interactions with a variety of forms of robot suggests new ways to perceive what communication, and being a communicator, entails.

"The main focus of the book is on communication methods, traversing humans, animals and machines. ...The book includes a discussion on the blurred boundaries between humans, animals and machines, which prompts a discussion on cyborgs, but the discussion at this level is brief. ... the book explores and explains well the ongoing intersections between arts and robotics. lt clarifies important terminology, concepts and ideas that should have multidisciplinary benefits." (Cate Dowd, Communication Research and Practice, Vol. 2 (2), 2016)

"Will communication between humans and robots improve as technical advances make robots more similar to us? Not necessarily, as Eleanor Sandry convincingly argues in this fascinating, insightful book. Drawing ideas and vivid examples from robotics, communication theory, philosophy, and art, Robots and Communication shows how our deep differences from humanoid as well as nonhumanoid robots enrich the communication experience. A must read for robot designers, communication theorists, and anyone concerned about our increasing interaction with machines." - Robert T. Craig, University of Colorado, USA
