View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

The Dark Side of Interpersonal Communication examines the multifunctional ways in which seemingly productive communication can be destructive―and vice versa―and explores the many ways in which dysfunctional interpersonal communication operates across a variety of personal relationship contexts. This second edition of Brian Spitzberg and William Cupach’s classic volume presents new chapters and topics, along with updates of several chapters in the earlier edition, all in the context of surveying the scholarly landscape for new and important avenues of investigation.
 
Offering much new content, this volume features internationally renowned scholars addressing such compelling topics as uncertainty and secrecy in relationships; the role of negotiating self in cyberspace; criticism and complaints; teasing and bullying; infidelity and relational transgressions; revenge; and adolescent physical aggression toward parents. The chapters are organized thematically and offer a range of perspectives from both junior scholars and seasoned academics. By posing questions at the micro and macro levels, The Dark Side of Interpersonal Communication draws closer to a perspective in which the darker sides and brighter sides of human experience are better integrated in theory and research.
 
Appropriate for scholars, practitioners, and students in communication, social psychology, sociology, counseling, conflict, personal relationships, and related areas, this book is also useful as a text in graduate courses on interpersonal communication, ethics, and other special topics.

About the Author:

Brian H. Spitzbergreceived his B.A. (1978) in Speech Communication at University of Texas at Arlington, and his M.A. (1980) and Ph.D. (1981) in Communication Arts and Sciences at the University of Southern California. He is currently professor in the School of Communication at San Diego State University. His areas of research include interpersonal competence, conflict, jealousy, courtship violence, sexual coercion, and stalking. He is co-author of several books and scholarly articles and chapters, and serves as a frequent reviewer for numerous scholarly journals. He also serves in an advisory capacity for the San Diego District Attorney’s intergovernmental Stalking Strike Force Case Assessment Team, and is an active member of the Association of Threat Assessment Professionals.

Review:

"...the editors have accomplished their goal of raising the scholarly consciousness another notch about the less-studied, supposedly negative aspects of interpersonal communication. The individual chapters make interesting and informative reading and the collection as a whole is a useful addition to the interpersonal literature."
―Journal of Language and Social Psychology

"For the reader who is interested in learning more about the normalization of the less-than-fun side of communication, this volume presents a nice sampler on a variety of topics."
―Public Relations Review

"The chapters provide useful reviews of the issues, along with suggestions for new directions that will help guide future research. The book is a good addition to any relationship scholar's collection, especially for those scholars interested in the dark side of relationships. The book would be appropriate for graduate seminars in close relationships in a number of disciplines such as social psychology and communications."
―Karen Wilson, PsycCRITIQUES
