Praise for Intercultural Competence

“Because Lustig and Koester both provide the essential communication theory but also provide increasingly good examples from persons of different cultures speaking in their own voices. . .[the competition] falls short of giving students the richness of reading that this book does.” C. Thomas Preston, University of Missouri — St. Louis
