AS Communication and Culture: The Essential Introduction clearly guides students through the course and gives them the tips they need to become proficient in understanding and deconstructing communication texts and everyday culture.

'The use of direct address, rhetorical questions and a chatty conversational tone, with lots of concrete, everyday examples will involve students in a way that more conventional Communication studies textbooks do not ...
