Intercultural Communication, Fourth Edition provides students with a clear model for examining communication within cultural, micro-cultural, environmental, socio-relational, and perceptual contexts. The author depicts his theory as a series of circles representing the idea that communication is defined by the interdependence of cultural contexts. His presentation of contexts begins with the outermost cultural circle of the model and moves inward toward the most specific traits of communication - verbal and non-verbal messages. Each chapter focuses on one context and the combination of factors included within that context - setting, situation, and circumstances. The text also highlights influences such as values, ethnicity, physical geography, and attitudes and then examines certain means of interaction, including body language, eye contact, and the exchange of words. Additional topics covered include the stages of relationships, cross-cultural management, intercultural conflict, and culture shock. Besides updating examples and statistics to provide the most current information possible, the 4th edition will also include: An expanded and clarified discussion of the contextual model of intercultural communication (the organizing theme of the book). The model itself will also be redesigned to allow for ease of use and understanding. A new chapter on Cross-Cultural Conflict (Chapter 10) that includes some existing material (from Chapter 7), as well as a new discussion on the concept of "face". New sections on White//European-American culture. Discussing what it means to be White in America will be used as a comparison with other cultural groups discussed within and throughout the chapters. An expanded discussion on Arab Americans New material on Indian culture An expanded discussion on Chinese groups and communication, especially as pertains to the business world Discussion questions added to the end of each chapter
