"This thoroughly modern collection of essays, written by masters in the field, is a decisive contribution to the social psychology of language and communication. It represents some of the most productive and generative research frontiers which, though necessarily diverse, have been superbly integrated by Fiedler. It is a landmark publication and truly deserves the title Social Communication."
—Sik Hung Ng, PhD, FRSNZ, Professor and Chair of Social Psychology, City University of Hong Kong
"Why should social psychologists take an interest in communication? The essays in Social Communication offer a range of thoughtful and persuasive answers. These make the book essential reading for anyone interested in either social psychology or communication."
—Herbert H. Clark, PhD, Professor of Psychology, Stanford University
"With luck, social psychologists will take note of… the solid contributions in Social Communication, thereby renewing their interest in the social psychology of language." – Dana S. Dunn, PsycCRITIQUES
Klaus Fiedler is Professor of Psychology at the University of Heidelberg, Germany. His major research interests are in social cognition, judgment and decision making, language, affect and cognition, and – connecting all these interests – in the interplay of intrapersonal and environmental factors in the regulation of social behavior. He has made original contributions to these domains, published and edited various books, and served editorial functions for several journals, such as Psychological Review, Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, and European Journal of Social Psychology. His academic awards include the Gottfried-Willheim-Leibniz-Price 2000 and Theodor-Heuss-Professorship at the New School in New York in 2004.
