Written in a conversational style, this book introduces students to the foundations of intercultural communication, a vibrant discipline within the field. Authors Stella Ting-Toomey and Leeva Chung take a multicontextual, inclusive approach that balances international and intercultural communication issues against U.S. domestic diversity issues. In addition to emphasizing a value-oriented perspective on intercultural encounters, the text contains a robust ethical chapter, complete with specific guidelines that will help students become ethical intercultural communicators.

By integrating current empirical research with lively intercultural examples, the authors ask thought-provoking questions and pose ethical dilemmas for students to ponder. The text offers a sprawling treatment of such topics as ethnic and cultural identity change, culture shock and intercultural adjustment, romantic relationships and raising bicultural children, global identity challenges, and decision-making choices in intercultural ethics.

Review:


"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
