‘…offers knowledge, voices, discussions, and activities that will greatly help students engage and embody the learning experiences of intercultural communication in and out of the classroom.’

– Bin Zhang, Ph D., South Puget Sound Community College

In the fully updated Seventh Edition of Intercultural Communication: A Contextual Approach, bestselling author James W Neuliep provides a clear contextual model (visually depicted by a series of concentric circles) for examining communication within cultural, microcultural, environmental, sociorelational and perceptual contexts.

He introduces the broadest context – the cultural component of the model – and progresses chapter by chapter through the model to the most specific dimensions of communication. Each chapter focuses on one context and explores the combination of factors within that context, including setting, situation and circumstances. Highlighting values, ethnicity, physical geography and attitudes, the book examines means of interaction, including body language, eye contact and exchange of words, as well as the stages of relationships, cross-cultural management, intercultural conflict and culture shock.
