Richard F. Carter was involved in the development of the communication field almost from the beginning. Most closely associated with the mass communication tradition, he has nevertheless become a source of theoretical and methodological illumination for scholars in widely disparate areas. This book brings together 15 exemplar chapters illustrating the applications of Carter's work to specific avenues of scholarship and 23 commentaries that focus on Carter's academic life in the context of the communication field's history. The volume includes a chronology of Carter's professional life and a bibliography of his works; it concludes with an original essay by Carter.
