The Communication of Jealousy (2013) by Jennifer Bevan has won the International Association for Relationship Research (IARR) award for books published during 2013/2014. This is the book's third award! This book has won a second award this year - the 2014 National Communication Association's Diamond Anniversary Book Award! This book received the 2014 Gerald R. Miller Outstanding Book Award from the "Interpersonal Communication Division of the National Communication Association" and the "National Communication Association - Communication and Social Cognition Division - 2013 Distinguished Book Award". Informed by a wide variety of academic disciplines and offering a unique interpersonal communication approach to the study of jealousy, The Communication of Jealousy examines, integrates, and informs research on jealousy experience and expression. The book's integration and interpretation of academic jealousy research is through a jealousy expression lens, meaning that the focus will be particularly, but not exclusively, on jealousy research that includes a behavioral or communicative component that is drawn from a number of academic disciplines as diverse as communication, social and clinical psychology, sociology, criminology, forensic anthropology, and the biological sciences. To date, no academic book has considered jealousy primarily from an interpersonal communication perspective; in doing so, this book effectively connects jealousy research from related academic disciplines and develops a theory that advances the state of jealousy expression research.
