Editorial Reviews

Review

'This book is a useful reminder that culture is constructed, perpetuated and changed through small acts of communication in everyday life. It offers a clear, practical methodology for escaping the essentialization of people, behaviors and events ... Most enjoyable are the illustrative anecdotes of intercultural (mis)communication presented for analysis and interpretation.' – Claire Kramsch, University of California, Berkeley, USA

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is one of the worst text books I've had to use so far in my graduate studies. The way in which the authors organized the book makes little sense. They give you a bit of information on the topic and then an activity that really doesn't help you understand the material. As far as the material goes the authors included some interesting resources but decided to just use small extracts from different articles to make their point. This made class discussion very superficial since we only had a superficial understanding of the topic at hand. I usually keep my books after a class is over however, this book will not be one of them. I'm definitely selling this back even if I don't get much back for it.

Other than being a fantastic introduction on some critical themes in intercultural communication, this book contains excerpts from many different sources to provide different perspectives on similar ideas. The result is a comprehensive book that is great for both educators and students alike. I highly recommend it.

At first glance, this book appears kind of dry, but it was actually very interesting, and did a great job of addressing different issues and viewpoints in intercultural communication. The anecdotes and examples balanced out the theory, making it easy to draw correlations to real world events.
