Book Description

Every day, the human awakes to a new world, a new dawn and a new cascade of nonverbal communication.  It may be the pleasant scent of a rose, the soft touch of a loved one, the sight of sun rays on a bedroom floor or the excited chatter of a child.  Whatever form it takes, your environment and all who inhabit it send nonverbal signals all day long – even while they sleep. 
The Routledge Dictionary of Nonverbal Communication celebrates this communication, examining a very wide selection of nonverbal behaviours, actions and signals to provide the reader with an informed insight on the world around them and its messages. Compiled in the form of a dictionary, the book is presented as a series of chapters with alphabetical entries, ranging from attractiveness to zeitgeist.  The book aims to provide the reader with a clear understanding of some of the relevant discourse on particular topics, while also making it practical and easy to read. It draws on a wide selection of discourse from fields such as neuroscience, psychology, anthropology and psychiatry.
The dictionary will be an essential companion for anyone wishing to understand nonverbal communication. It will also be especially useful for those working in the field of nonverbal communication.
