Focusing on pioneers in journalism, contemporary media professionals, and scholars in interpersonal, organizational, and mass communication, this book provides full profiles of 48 outstanding women in communication. Each profile examines the woman's family background, education, mentors, career path, major contributions and achievements, and concludes with a bibliography of the most important scholarly publications. Since communication is a relatively young discipline, many of the women included are at the prime of their professional career. Subjects were selected by a peer-review process. An appendix provides brief highlights of the lives of an additional 29 communication scholars.
