Key Thinkers in Critical Communication Scholarship. From the Pioneers to the Next Generation

From the Pioneers to the Next Generation

Edited by John A. Lent and Michelle A. Amazeen

This book serves as a guidepost to those wishing to understand the difficulties facing critical researchers and how others have been able to navigate through these challenges. It is particularly valuable for those interested in learning about the scholars who conducted research that did not conform to mainstream social science standards and challenged established views. In addition, the lives and work of these critical researchers offers a means for understanding ourselves as we try to make sense of the dynamic and complicated world in which we live.

The above text is from the publisher's description of the book. It is noteworthy that 10 of the 12 key thinkers presented in this book are members of IAMCR.
