Researching Communications Reviews


Researching Communications does a superb job of explaining both cultural analysis and social research methods. Covering everything from semiotics to statistics and discourse analysis to computers, it is also an up-to-date, authoritative, and extremely well-written introduction to communications in general. I recommend this book to anyone who teaches courses in research and communication. Arthur Asa Berger, San Franciso State University, ... an enormously useful text for anyone interested in an up-to-date guide to cultural analysis; it will be indispensable for teaching research methods in communication studies. Hanno Hardt, University of Iowa, USA
