COMMUNICATION BETWEEN CULTURES continues with the features that have made it the best-selling text for the intercultural communication course. This new edition of Samovar and Porter's leading text gives students an understanding and appreciation of different cultures and helps them develop practical skills for improving their communication with people from other cultures. It's renowned for being the only text on the market to consistently emphasize religion and history as key variables in intercultural communication. Packed with the latest research and filled with numerous, compelling examples that force students to examine their own assumptions and cultural biases, this book helps students understand the subtle and profound ways culture affects communication. The book is divided into four interrelated parts: Part I introduces the study of communication and culture; Part II focuses on the ability of culture to shape and modify our view of reality; Part III puts the theory of intercultural communication into practice; and Part IV converts knowledge into action.

RICHARD E. PORTER (Ph.D., University of Southern California) is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Communication Studies at California State University, Long Beach. He developed his interest in intercultural communication in 1967 before there was an established field of study. His early work along with that of other pioneers in the field laid a basic structural foundation which has been used by many later scholars as the field developed and expanded. He created and taught undergraduate and graduate courses in intercultural communication for 30 years. Dr. Porter is the co-author and editor of 4 books with 24 editions that deal with the subject of intercultural communication.
