Description: Many textbooks on intercultural communication are not written with an intercultural readership in mind. This multinational team of authors has, on the other hand, put together an introduction to communicating across cultures that draws on examples and case studies from across the world, using no single culture as its frame of reference. Developed to be as accessible for international students as it is for native speakers,this text situates communication theory in a truly global perspective.Structured around the links between theory and practice and between the global and the local, the discussion covers the key theories and their practical applications, as well as new topics often neglected in textbooks, such as international conflict, social networking, migrancy, and the effect that technology and mass media play in the globalization of communication. Along the way, you will be supported with first-rate learning resources, including:'¢ Concise, boxed-out digests of key theoretical concepts in the Theory Corners'¢ Putting the main points of each chapter into context with a detailed real-life Case Illustration'¢ Framing each chapter and stimulating further discussion, learning objectives, discussion questions, key terms and further reading'¢ Resources for instructors, including multiple choice questions, presentation slides, exercises and activities, and teaching notes on the book's fully developed companion website.This book will not merely get you through your intercultural communication course, but teach you to become a more critical consumer of information and understand the influence of your own culture on how you view yourself and others.
