About the Author:

Thomas J. Socha is ODU University Professor and Associate Professor of Communication at Old Dominion University. He is the founding editor of the Journal of Family Communication, and received the NCA’s Bernard J. Brommel Award for Outstanding Scholarship and Distinguished Service in Family Communication. His publications include books, chapters and articles about various facets of family communication.

Glen H. Stamp is a Professor, Department Chair, and Director of Graduate Studies in the Department of Communication Studies at Ball State University. He has previously published one book (with Thomas J. Socha) on parent-child communication as well as authoring numerous articles and chapters in interpersonal communication and family communication.

Review:

Jennings Bryant, communication series editor: The authors' arguments for its need are cogent, and I do see this as a valid next step for collecting and organizing a new generation of research literature on family communication. Certainly a great deal of current research in family communication falls within the purview that the volume has adopted.


John Caughlin, University of Illinois: I think the biggest strength is that this really is carving out a new niche. I don’t know of any similar type of project. Also, the editors seem to have complementary kinds of experiences that should allow for a good collaboration (again). One weakness is that because the area is fairly new, several of the chapters look like they will be preliminary or even speculative. I see this problem as a reasonable trade-off for attempting something that is pretty unique. I see this book as having the potential to be influential in among family communication scholars. It’s too focused to be adopted as a primary text, but I could see using it as a secondary text in a family communication course. I doubt it will be a 'best seller' because of the relatively narrow scope, but I also think that it’s a fairly low risk project. The editors and several of the authors are well known in communication, and that will ensure reasonably good sales to faculty and graduate students in communication.


 Tammy Afifi, UC Santa Barbara: I think the topics are very good and quite interesting. I think it would be a good draw for researchers and family members interested in contemporary family life. But, I question the rigor of the text. I’m just hoping that there is enough solid research to back up each of the chapters. The chapters also seem as though they aren’t that theory-driven. I would make sure that the chapters are tied to theory in some way to give the book more substance. [The editors] are quite well known in family communication and I’m sure would be a draw for a good readership. Glen Stamp, in particular, is known for his qualitative work in family communication. Tom Socha is also very respected for his books, his leadership in the field, and as editor of the Journal of Family Communication. I think the primary strength is the timely nature of the topic. When I first read the title of the proposed book, I wasn’t that intrigued. But, then I read the proposed individual chapters and was delighted by the topics themselves....very timely and appealing to today’s busy and diverse families.


Patricia Noller, University of Queensland: One of my concerns about the content as a whole, is that, as with most edited books, it is somewhat opportunistic. By this I mean, that rather than providing overviews of the particular areas of parent-child communication outside the family such as in areas of health, education, and sport, many of the chapter authors are presenting their latest research in the area, research that is sometimes on the edge of the area rather than central to it. In terms of the primary audience for this volume, I suspect that it would be mainly a resource for specialists in parent-child communication outside the family. It could become a resource for physicians, teachers and child-care operators, but in each case, only a couple of chapters are relevant. I doubt that it could become a textbook in courses on family communication, or for general courses on the family, but some of the chapters could be resources for such courses. I think the authors are overoptimistic in their suggestions with regard to the likely audience. I have not seen anything that I would consider competition for this volume. Nevertheless, in order for it to be successful I think it needs to provide chapters on more mainstream issues, and fewer on the more esoteric aspects of the topic.
