Handbook of communication by Ithiel de Sola Pool( Book )

14 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 685 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Each of the 31 chapters which comprise this volume reviews the state of the art in a specific area of communications research. The chapters are grouped into three sections, the first of which focuses upon the basic communication process. An introduction to the concept of a communication system and to the phenomena of language and nonverbal communication is followed by considerations of mass media and their audiences and of interpersonal communication. Additional chapters deal with the impact of communication on children and with persuasion and propaganda. Part ii examines the communication process in a variety of settings. These include the mass media, small groups, bureaucracies, advertising, political parties and scientific institutions. Individual chapters explore the role of communication in each of these settings in advanced industrial society and compare communication in a Western democratic environment with its operation in Communist nations, the developing world, and in relations between states. Part iii reviews current methods of communication research, particularly aggregate data analysis and experimental studies of communication effects. (Author)

"Ithiel de Sola Pool was a distinguished scholar of the political process, and one of the most original thinkers in the development of an integrated social science. This volume focuses upon his contributions to the development of research methods that deepen our understanding of human behavior.The book is divided into five parts treating the analysis of communications, computer simulation, forecasting, network theory, and the social sciences in political contexts. The first part considers the problems and possibilities of analysis raised by the unprecedented quantity of data made available by widespread and improved communications technology; what should be counted and how should inferences be made. Part two explores computer simulation in the study of presidential election patterns and how it can provide in-depth analyses of crisis situations in history. Part three focuses on strategies for predicting the future of international politics and methods to forecast the impacts of new communications technologies, while part four offers a rigorous analysis of domestic and global contact networks and the so-called "small world" phenomenon.Part five is concerned with external challenges to the use of social science to create more humane politics, including the question of value neutrality, ideology, "deconstructive" critical theory, and threats by government to the health of universities. In a concluding essay Lloyd Etheredge draws upon Pool's work to discuss several new ways in which the methods treated in this volume can be applied to contemporary social change."--Provided by publisher
