This eye-opening reader explores how communication values and styles can be similar or different for members of various cultures and communities. INTERCULTURAL COMMUNICATION: A READER focuses on practical strategies you can use to communicate more effectively in a variety of contexts, including interpersonal, rhetoric, group, business, education, health care, and organizational. This broad-based, highly engaging reader, compiled by the authors who defined the course, includes a balanced selection of articles—some commissioned solely for this text—that discusses the classic ideas that laid the groundwork for this field, as well as the latest research and ideas. Material is presented in such a way that you can read, understand, and then apply course concepts to your own life.
"I like [the proposal] very much. Bringing back some of the articles from previous editions will provide students with an historical perspective that is not found in the current edition, and will serve to bring some sense of scholarly continuity to the study of intercultural communication. The final "New Perspectives" chapter then points to the future of this field of study, again providing continuity."
