With chapters written by the creators of the research measures, this volume represents work across disciplines, and provides first-hand experience and thoughtful guidance on the use of nonverbal measures. It also offers research strategies researchers can use to answer their research questions; discussions of larger research paradigms into which a measure may be placed; and analysis tools to help researchers think through the research choices available to them.
With its thorough and pragmatic approach, this Sourcebook will be an invaluable resource for studying nonverbal behavior. Researchers in interpersonal communication, psychology, personal relationships, and related areas will find it to be an essential research tool.
" This book will serve both to introduce new methods and to familiarize readers with the variety of choices available in the study of nonverbal behavior. Highly Recommended."
" Valerie Manusov, the editor of this anthology, is to be lauded for bringing together within two covers a hefty set of measures, the range of which is unlikely to be known even to those who do work in this area. If this collection leads researchers to expand their conception of the nature of social interactions and what can be assessed in them, then its purpose will have been well served."
