Overview Communication: A Critical/Cultural Introduction, Second Edition introduces communication theory, interpersonal communication, and public communication and culture through the lens of contemporary critical theory. John T. Warren and Deanna L. Fassett focus on public advocacy as a more meaningful way to approach public speaking through coverage of topics and issues that readers are most passionate about. By situating communication concepts and theories within contemporary and engaging cultural scenes, the book is much more than a survey of ideas - it demonstrates the power of communication in our everyday lives. This new edition enhances the book's focus on the connections between public advocacy and traditional public speaking, and the 2nd edition also includes two new chapters on listening and small group communication. New and updated examples have been added throughout the text, and new end-of-chapter questions and activities have been added to reinforce concepts and allow students to put their learning into practice. Key features include: *Takes a critical/cultural approach: Students come to appreciate how communication occurs within the context of power and our different cultural locations *Written in an engaging narrative style: The authors' own stories, and the narratives woven throughout each chapter, create a sense of relevance for the content *Provides a focus on public advocacy: Connecting students' work to the process of being critical, active citizens, this feature shows how civic engagement can improve our communities *Illustrated with contemporary examples: Theory and concepts are demonstrated through discussions of marriage equality, affirmative action, disability, and social media
