The fourth edition of Making Connections has been updated, expanded, and reorganized to reflect the changing field of relational communication. New essays address emerging topics--including anti-comforting messages, friendship in urban tribes, and discourse-dependent families--while a new section on the "dark side" of communication features articles on such topics as lying and irresolvable conflicts. Three new essays in the technology section reflect current thinking on Internet-based interpersonal relationships; communication norms in an online support group; and how student use of technology challenges existent communication theories. This edition also adds a complete subject index and is accompanied by an Instructor's Manual. Continuing the successful tradition and framework of previous editions, the fourth edition of Making Connections: * Employs the "lenses" of gender, family, and culture to view and make sense of relational communication * Offers a well-rounded discussion of the links between basic communication competencies and relationships * Features a developmental approach in terms of initiating, sustaining, and ending relationships * Reflects direct applications of relational issues within contexts of family, friendship, and technology * Explores issues relating to computer-mediated communication and new technologies in everyday life
