9780199773367: Understanding Intercultural Communication B

Understanding Intercultural Communication introduces students to the foundations of intercultural communication, a growing sub-discipline within Communication. Ting-Toomey and Chung are both well known and active in the scholarly community, and their book features a theme of flexible intercultural communication, positioning itself as an antidote to texts that are prescriptive and rules-y or overly theoretical. Praised for its attention to pedagogy and its holistic approach, the book also avoids some of the pitfalls of the market leader, Samovar, written from a fairly masculinist and US frame.
This book got a toehold in its very first edition, and there is certainly room to grow. Reviews were quite strong, and suggest a book that has some growth in it.

About the Author:

California State University, FullertonUniversity of San Diego


"One of the best undergraduate textbooks in intercultural communication."--Kenneth C.C. Yang, University of Texas at El Paso

"Provides a good balance between the serious and fun aspects of studying intercultural communication. I particularly like the way the book has questions as chapter titles to introduce the more formal study of the field. The book provides more comprehensive coverage of the major concepts of intercultural communication than the competition."--Susan Opt, Salem College

"This is an excellent text when teaching large lecture sections. The concepts are designated within the text in a way that the students can pick them out and know what it is that they are expected to study for exams."--Marcella La Fever,California State Stanislaus
