Designed to help students understand communication processes in relationships and develop specific skills needed to create and maintain healthy ones, Inter-Act: Interpersonal Communication Concepts, Skills, and Contexts, Thirteenth Edition, retains the features that have made this book so successful: a theory driven skills-based focus, an accessible tone and presentation, and a multitude of useful pedagogical tools. For this edition, Joseph Mazer of Clemson University (whose scholarship includes original research on social media) authored much of the new and unique social media content and Brant Burleson and Erina MacGeorge of Purdue helped to update the scholarship, while maintaining the skills-based approach that this text is known for.

Lively and well-written, Inter-Act features numerous activities that enable students to relate their everyday experiences to their studies in communication. It also clearly illustrates how cultural, racial, and gender differences-as well as electronically mediated messages-alter what we should do to communicate effectively. With a strong focus on the importance of ethics, this leading text encourages students to develop their analytical abilities as they think critically about key concepts in interpersonal communication.
