Open Access Graduate Research Paper
For half a century, a major change in China has been communication, the fundamental social process by which information is shared, sentiments are expressed, and human relations are maintained. Communication is not treated merely as a stimulus or as a change agent, that brings about effects in terms of specific individual response. Rather, communication is conceptualized as the basic social process, encompassing an intricate entirety of verbal or nonverbal stimulus and response, the patterns of which change dynamically and concomitantly with changes in the social structure.
