Intercultural Communication in Contexts / Edition 7 available in Paperback
The 7th edition of Intercultural Communication in Contexts examines communication in multicultural relationships and provides the tools for effective communication amid cultural, ethnic, and religious differences in domestic and global contexts. Students are introduced to the primary approaches for studying intercultural communication along with a theoretical and practical framework for applying the approaches in their own lives. The varied backgrounds of coauthors Judith N. Martin, a social scientist, and Thomas K. Nakayama, a critical rhetorician, bring a unique viewpoint to the subject matter.
