View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Where groups of people gather, there is always an elephant in the room: difference. 

Elephants are remarkable, complex creatures which take up much space. Likewise, matters of race, culture, and difference require creative and complicated conversations―which moves us beyond “we are all alike” or “we all matter”―to understanding the significance of difference, as both a gift and a challenge. 

Intercultural Communication in Your Life teaches readers the essential nature of difference, what to do with difference, and how to see difference beyond deficiency. It provides a lens for understanding the complex networks of communication in which we dwell.

Readers are invited to study communication and culture as a part of their everyday lived experience including but not limited to popular culture, co-culture, worldview, race, gender, social class, sexual orientation, personal relationships, verbal/nonverbal communication, conflict, new media, and more.  

The NEW second edition of Intercultural Communication in Your Life:

  • Streamlines the vast research base for intercultural communication and speaks directly to the reader.      
  • Takes readers on a journey through many rooms, personal and professional. Readers will see many critical topics, theories, and dialogue embedded within this text―providing concrete and complex, but accessible approaches to studying and thinking seriously about culture and everyday life.
  • Incorporates an In Your Life organizing feature - a process designed to develop the reader’s critical thinking skills and make him/her a more reflexive communicator with the ability to adapt and continually improve.  
  • Is a perfect choice for a variety of face-to-face, hybrid, and online courses - including introduction to intercultural communication, cultural competence, communication and diversity, and more.
