Overview

Even in a world made smaller every day by the Internet and social media, we sometimes experience culture shock when interacting with others. Fortunately for those who find themselves lost in an unfamiliar culture, help is at hand in the form of Intercultural Relations: Communication, Identity, and Conflict. Written in an easy, accessible style, this manual provides tools to analyze and interpret the dynamics of intercultural communication on both the domestic and international levels. The author draws upon his many years in the field of international relations as well as his training in psychiatry to show how to better understand and overcome the barriers to effective intercultural communication.

While enormously helpful for the junior diplomat, or for the services member anticipating a first deployment, this book contains enough variety to keep even seasoned career officers informed and engaged. It would also be a boon to business people with international clients or to students of intercultural relations. Offered at an affordable price point, unlike most other anthologies in the field, it will enhance anyone’s effectiveness in a cross-cultural situation—truly making the world a little smaller through each interaction.
