Editors Theodore A. Avtgis and Andrew S. Rancer bring together a score of prolific and informed authors to discuss aspects of the conceptualization and measurement of aggressive communication. The book features an exclusive focus on two aggressive communication traits: Argumentativeness and Verbal Aggressiveness, one of the most dominant areas of communication research over the last twenty five years both nationally and internationally. The chapters include cutting-edge issues in the field and present new ideas for future research.This book is a valuable resource for instructors, researchers, scholars, theorists, and graduate students in communication studies and social psychology. Covering a variety of topics, from the broad-based (e.g., new directions in aggressive communication in the organizational context) to the more specific (e.g., verbal aggression in sports), this text presents a comprehensive compilation of essays on aggressive communication and conflict.
