The interdisciplinary field of Nonverbal Communication Studies is covered in these three volumes in a great variety of aspects, including sensory exchanges, intercultural communication and problems, and the deeper levels of personal as well as person-environment interactions. Taking roots in anthropology, psychology and sociology, the author provides a unique compilation of approaches to communication, integrating language and literature, speech analysis, voice phenomena (paralanguage), gestures, manners and postures (kinesics), silence, non-bodily and environmental sounds, etc., and the temporal aspects of interaction (chronemics).This work offers a wealth of materials for different research fields and professions to which communication is central: language teaching, translation and interpreting, publicity, literature, theater and cinema, and the helping professions. Over 3700 literary illustrative quotations from hundreds of authors constitute a virtual treatise on nonverbal communication in literature.
Fernando Poyatos, besides teaching Nonverbal Communication in the departments of Anthropology, Psychology and Sociology of his university, has lectured in many others in over twenty countries, organized international symposiums, and spoken to specialists, in different disciplines. Here he offers the most interdisciplinary and cross-cultural perspective in the field.
