This volume presents, in an integrated framework, the newest, most contemporary perspectives on the role of nonverbal behavior in social interaction. The book includes empirically-grounded work and theories that are central to our understanding of the reciprocal influences between nonverbal behavior and social variables. In doing so, it contributes to the ongoing controversy now shaping the field regarding the degree to which nonverbal behavior represents social, as opposed to biological, forces. Contributors to this volume also highlight a number of recent subareas in the domain of nonverbal behavior that hold much promise, including the role of nonverbal behavior in group membership and media influences on nonverbal behavior. This book will prove useful to professionals in communication, psychotherapy, and counseling.
