New Directions in Group Communication</B> takes as its mission the setting of the agenda for the study of group communication in the future. It does so by presenting work that scholars have not previously explored in the current small group communication literature. Part one focuses on new theoretical and conceptual directions, both presenting new views and extending current positions. Part two examines new research methodologies, while part three looks at antecedent factors affecting group communication. The fourth and fifth parts of the text provide insight into both group communication process and practices. Part six covers different group communication contexts, including communication patterns in top management teams. </FONT></P><FONT SIZE="2"></FONT><P><FONT SIZE="2">An excellent companion to <I>The Handbook of Group Communication Theory and Research, </I>this volume sets the direction for future study for students and scholars alike.&nbsp;&nbsp;</FONT></P><FONT SIZE="2"></FONT>
