The Handbook of Interpersonal Communication is the first comprehensive, single-volume review of the state-of-the-art in interpersonal communication research. It is a definitive reference source, authored by an outstanding international group of communication researchers.

While the contributors take diverse conceptual, theoretical and epistemological approaches to the study of human communication, several common themes run throughout the book: a focus on behaviour, a focus on time, a focus on social cognition, a concern with control and a concern with individual differences. Each chapter includes an extensive literature review, comprehensive bibliography and assessment of where future research in the field is - and ought to be - going.
