Description/Abstract

Summary: The overall framework of this book is shaped by three fundamental questions: what is the relationship between communication and metatheoretical assumptions; what is the relationship between communication and identity; what is the relationship between communication and culture? ... Each question is explored through different approaches to reading the same three artifacts, or texts, so that readers have a sense of the multiple meanings that are possible" -- p.1.
