This textbook provides a comprehensive, balanced introduction to communication research methods. Designed for students who have little or no familiarity with research methods, this book helps them to become more knowledgeable and competent consumers (and producers) of scholarly research and of the everyday research to which they are exposed by the mass media.

Praised for its accessible writing and extensive real-life examples, this text takes students step-by-step through the communication research process. Investigating Communication teaches students how communication research is conducted from start to finish, with the text's organization modeled after a traditional research study. By making the material accessible rather than impossible to learn, students become excited about studying research methods.

About the Author:

Lawrence (Larry) R. Frey is a Professor in the Department of Communication at the University of Colorado at Boulder. His teaching and research interests include group interaction, applied communication (communication activism, communication and social justice, communication and community studies, and health communication), and communication research methods (both quantitative and qualitative). His research seeks to understand how participation (especially by those who are underresourced and marginalized) in collective communicative practices makes a difference in people s individual, relational, and collective lives. He received a B.S. from Northwestern University and an M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of Kansas. Prior to coming to the University of Colorado at Boulder, he served as department chair at The University of Memphis and as a faculty member at Loyola University Chicago and at Wayne State University. He is the author/editor of 14 books, 3 special journal issues, and more than 60 published book chapters and journal articles. He is the recipient of 11 distinguished scholarship awards, including the 2000 Gerald M. Phillips Award for Distinguished Applied Communication Scholarship from the National Communication Association (NCA); the 2004, 2003, and 2000 Ernest Bormann Research Award from NCA s Group Communication Division, for, respectively, the edited texts, Group Communication in Context: Studies of Bona Fide Groups (2nd ed.), New Directions in Group Communication, and The Handbook of Group Communication Theory and Research (coedited with Dennis S. Gouran and Marshall Scott Poole); a 1999 Special Recognition Award from NCA s Applied Communication Division for an edited special issue of the Journal of Applied Communication Research on Communication and Social Justice Research; the 1998 National Jesuit Book Award (Professional Studies Category) and the 1988 Distinguished Book Award from NCA s Applied Communication Division for his coauthored text (with Mara B. Adelman), The Fragile Community: Living Together With AIDS; and the 1995 Gerald R. Miller Award from NCA s Interpersonal and Small Group Interaction Division and the 1994 Distinguished Book Award from NCA s Applied Communication Division for his edited text, Group Communication in Context: Studies of Natural Groups. He is a past president of the Central States Communication Association and a recipient of the Outstanding Young Teacher Award from that organization, as well as a 2003 Master Teacher Award from the Communication and Instruction Interest Group of the Western States Communication Association.
