Arnett (communication and English) and Arneson (communication) both of Duquesne University offer a way to find hope in what they call the "mud of everyday life." They recognize that we live in a cynical age, but they suggest that we can still achieve civility and even thoughtful dialogue, by insisting that we return to a commitment to acknowledge the common good. They argue that we can actually get along with others and create relationships by using dialogic civility, which requires respect for topics, others, multiple perspectives, and the given historical moment. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

It is a rare pleasure to read a scholarly book that offers a realistic basis for hope about the possibilities for enriched communication. In their book the authors offer hope hope for human thought and action and, most especially, for human communication praxis. From the Foreword by Julia T. Wood Dialogic Civility in a Cynical Age provides a dialogue with some common sense voices of reason, civility, caring, and interpersonal relations. It is truly a praxis applying theories of dialogic communication and civility to our moment in history. How timely in this age, which places emphasis on recognition of diversity and yet also includes skinheads and hate groups. The book doesn t give a naive view of the world. It takes a realistic look at dialogic communication and its possible role in countering much of today s unenlightened, unreflective cynicism about our communities and the future of our society. T. Dean Thomlison, University of Evansville, Indiana""It is a rare pleasure to read a scholarly book that offers a realistic basis for hope about the possibilities for enriched communication.
