Overview

"This text seems perfectly geared to the current generation of highly pragmatic students, who are eager for structure, for information that is organized and repeated for easy assimilation, and for steady readouts on how they are doing." —TECHNICAL COMMUNICATION

The Third Edition of Intercultural Communication: A Contextual Approach is a state-of-the-art introduction to the processes that are critical for successful and competent communication with people from different cultures. Author James W. Neuliep advances his contextual model of intercultural communication to examine communication within cultural, micro-cultural, environmental, socio-relational, and perceptual contexts.

[The book] is designed for college students taking their first course in intercultural communication. The purpose of the book is to introduce students to some of the fundamental topics, theories, concepts, and themes that are the center of the study of international communication. [The book] alerts the student to the importance and necessity of intercultural communication as we enter the dawn of the twenty-first century. [It] defines culture as an accumulated pattern of values, beliefs, and behaviors, shared by an identifiable group of people with a common history and verbal and nonverbal code system. [Then it] focuses on the microcultural context [and] environmental context ... examines the perceptual contexts of the interactions ... discusses the sociorelational context [and] the development of intercultural relationships.... Virtually all of the chapters in this book contain cultural conversations. -Pref.

Deandre Poole
"Affordable and reader friendly...In today's multicultural world, it is important to keep in mind the context (setting) when communicating with people from different cultures. This text considers various communication contexts and emphasizes the proper skills needed to effectively communicate."
Robert Wright
It is an up-to-date presentation of the topic with very helpful student assessments as to where they fit in dealing with each issue. Objectives are clear for every chapter, thus enabling the students to identify what they should be able to know and do after completing each. One of the most helpful resources for faculty who travel and/or teach abroad in preparing them to communicate cross-culturally.
