Summarizes the important and promising emerging theories of human communication.

Book News
Kovacic (U. of Hartford) leads 15 international theorists academics and the CEO of an Australian management consulting firm in advancing watershed paradigms on the age-old conundrum of human communication. The editor's introduction defines traits of emerging (as vs. "received") theories, and draws conclusions about contributors' attempts to derive "a new standard of practical relevance of theorizing about communication." On the micro-level, models are presented on communication competence, interpersonal conflict, and cross-cultural perspectives. The macro-empirical focus is on an interactionist framework for peace, media agenda-setting theory, new rhetoric and new social movements, and managing government competitiveness.
