An Introduction To Communication Studies (Paperback): Sheila L Steinberg An Introduction To Communication Studies (Paperback)
Sheila L Steinberg 5
R528 R448 Discovery Miles 4 480 Save R80 (15%) Shipped within 4 - 8 working days

Although the theory is based on material used in the USA and other overseas universities, South African students will be able to identify with the local examples, TV programmes and other mass media, and the political and social experiences referred to in this title, many of which have been localised to reflect the South African context. Beginner students majoring in communication studies as well as those who are studying towards various degrees or qualifications where communication is a prerequisite, will find this title useful. In addition to interpersonal, group and mass communication, there is an extensive chapter on public speaking, which takes into account that many professionals today have to address their colleagues and business associates in order to succeed in their profession. Public speaking in this sense is a skill required by most graduates in any job or profession, and the chapter is pitched at these requirements as well as at speaking to larger audiences. The title is divided into two parts. The first provides students with a strong foundation of communication, while the second focuses on the areas of specialisation within communication studies. In addition, each chapter starts with the learning outcomes and a short overview of the chapter. Students may monitor their learning with the summaries and 'test yourself' questions at the end of every chapter. Scenarios provide examples of how the theory can be applied in practice.

Integrated Organisational Communication  (Paperback, 2nd Edition): George Angelopulo, Rachel Barker Integrated Organisational Communication (Paperback, 2nd Edition)

R746 R622 Discovery Miles 6 220 Save R124 (17%) In stock

Communication is often described as the glue that binds an organisation, enabling interaction with its customers, agents and the broader public. Communication flourishes in organisations and is central to their activities and functions: as marketing communication, public relations, management communication, corporate communication, etc.; in determining and implementing strategy, operations and processes; in all interaction - interpersonal, mediated, digital and social; as the foundation of corporate culture. Integrated Organisational Communication 2nd Edition covers these aspects and addresses the growing need among students and practitioners for a book that takes a broad look at organisations' communication, and then delves into the detail. This book adopts a multidisciplinary approach to organisational communication, and while it takes cognisance of individual academic and professional disciplines, it avoids alignment with any one of these.

101 chance meetings, juxtaposing the famous and the infamous, the artistic and the philistine, the pompous and the comical, the snobbish and the vulgar, told by Britain's funniest writer. Life is made up of humans meeting one another. They speak, or don't speak. They get on, or fall out. They laugh, they cry, are excited, are indifferent. One on One is a chain of 101 extraordinary but true encounters, from Tolstoy rumbling Tchaikovsky in 1876 to George Galloway baiting Michael Barrymore in 2006. The Royal Family giggle at T.S. Eliot, Walter Sickert draws the curtains on the carol-singing Edward Heath, Youssoupoff assassinates Rasputin, Marilyn Monroe commissions Frank Lloyd Wright. Circular in its construction, panoramic in its breadth, One on One is a book like no other. `Brown's glorious book is an original and a complete delight' Miranda Seymour, Sunday Times, Books of the Year
