About the Book :

The book "Communicational Anthropology" has been written with a sole aim to highlight different aspects of communication from the point of view of anthropology. Although communicational anthropology is being taught in different Universities of India in Post-graduate and undergraduate Departments, but there is no any systematic book covering all aspects of communication under single cover. There are few books but they do not cover the entire syllabus. They also lack Indian expression. The teachers, students, research scholars and other scholars interested in the study of communication have to face a problem. This book attempts to solve the problems of the readers by providing them materials covering all aspects of communications in simple English language with Indian expression. Types, functions, agents, channels, media, impediments, approaches, structure and ethnography of communication have been dealt with in detail. Impact of communication revolution has also been presented at length. The book is very useful for the scholars, researchers, students and teachers.
