Communication: A Critical/Cultural Introduction, Second Edition introduces communication, from intimate and interpersonal to the public and mediated, as cultural. Using contemporary critical theory, authors John T. Warren and Deanna L. Fassett focus on communication as advocacy—inherently influenced by culture, history and power. 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.

The third edition of Communication: A Critical/Cultural Introduction provides a comprehensive, yet focused, overview of communication theory, interpersonal communication, and public communication and culture through the lens of contemporary critical theory. The text shows how we produce our world through communication, challenging us to explore power, ideology, and diversity through daily interactions, both public and private. The book begins with explanations of how communication relates to culture and power, how to distinguish between representative and constitutive communication, and how to build a message for an audience with an emphasis on social advocacy. Later chapters explore the responsibilities of speakers and listeners, alliance-building, the application of communication theory in the study of identity and perception, the relationship between language and culture, nonverbal communication, and more. The text closes with a discussion of communication as a means of social action, encouraging readers to use communication as a foundation for the advancement of issues that matter most to them.

Wir betrachten unsere Art zu sprechen vielleicht nicht als "gewalttätig", dennoch führen unsere Worte oft zu Verletzung und Leid - bei uns selbst oder bei anderen. Die Gewaltfreie Kommunikation hilft uns bei der Umgestaltung unseres sprachlichen Ausdrucks und unserer Art zuzuhören. Aus gewohnheitsmäßigen, automatischen Reaktionen werden bewusste Antworten. Wir werden angeregt, uns ehrlich und klar auszudrücken und gleichzeitig anderen Menschen unsere respektvolle Aufmerksamkeit zu schenken. Wenn wir die Gewaltfreie Kommunikation in unseren Interaktionen anwenden, ob mit uns selbst, mit einem anderen Menschen oder in einer Gruppe, kommen wir an eine Tür, die auf allen Ebenen der Kommunikation, in allen Altersklassen und in den unterschiedlichsten Situationen im Beruf, im Privatleben und auf dem politischen Parkett erfolgreich geöffnet werden kann. Die Gewaltfreie Kommunikation ist die verlorene Sprache der Menschheit, die Sprache derjenigen, die rücksichtsvoll miteinander umgehen und die die Sehnsucht haben, in Balance mit sich selbst und anderen zu leben. Mit Geschichten, Erlebnissen und beispielhaften Gesprächen macht Marshall Rosenberg in seinem Buch alltägliche Lösungen für komplexe Kommunikationsprobleme anschaulich.
