The chapters examine the important role that intergroup processes play in interpersonal, small group, organizational, and mass communication. This book also considers the impact of new technologies on communication. Intergroup Communication will be invaluable for scholars in the areas of communication and intergroup social psychology and is suited for upper-division undergraduate and introductory graduate courses in those areas.
