Communication Yearbook 21 reflects the rich diversity of the field of communication, both in terms of content areas and methods. The topics of the eleven reviews range from interpersonal influence to media practices and effects. The authors address issues such as organizational democracy and change, intercultural negotiation, journalism and broadcasting practices, the management off crisis and the relationship between media and the presidency. The volume was originally published in 1998. In addressing these issues, narratives, historical accounts and meta-analytic techniques are employed.
