Roxbury is pleased to announce the much-awaited Fourth Edition of Hickson et al.'s Nonverbal Communication: Studies and Applications.
The new edition features:
* A Greatly Enhanced Applications Orientation. The text now integrates applications throughout each chapter. Observational Studies provide opportunities for students to either work with or experiment with each theory discussed. Questions to Ponder at the end of each chapter give students further experience applying what they have learned. Also included are expanded individual applications of contemporary and historical research findings. This approach eases instruction as students learn to gauge how much they really know about nonverbal communication--and how to apply it to real-world situations. The activities will be particularly helpful for instructors who teach in an interactive style.
* A More Conversational Writing Style. This edition is written as if the authors were carrying on a conversation with their readers. There are more examples and fewer studies cited than in earlier editions.
* Controversial Issues of the Day. Contemporary topics such as tattooing, body piercing, plastic surgery, and botox are covered.
* New Coverage on Gender and Intercultural. Gender and intercultural are integrated throughout the text.
* Glossary of Terms. The new edition features this helpful reference for students.
* Expanded Coverage of Contextual Applications. These include work, family, and social contexts.
* Expanded Media Applications. There is new material on advertising, public relations, broadcasting, journalism, and impression management.
The text offers complete coverage of the field's basic subcodes: Haptics (touch); Proxemics (space); Physical appearance; Kinesics (human body movement); Oculesics (face and eye); Vocalics (paralanguage); Olfactics (scent and smell); and Chronemics (time usage).
An ever-popular feature is the chapter on research methodology. Students will better understand what they are learning if they become aware of the processes scholars follow in developing theories.
The authors conclude their text with a chapter on the future of nonverbal communication--what we know about the field, its practical implications, and where the discipline appears to be heading.

"Overall this is an excellent volume. The style here is lively and interesting, and the coverage is good and goes beyond the routine stuff available in most texts, with much more extensive examples outside the academic world. The authors are to be congratulated on a rare achievement."--Steve Duck, University of Iowa
