About the Author

Fred E. Jandt was born of second-generation German immigrants in the multicultural south-central region of Texas.  After graduating from Texas Lutheran University and Stephen F. Austin State University, he received his doctorate in communication from Bowling Green State University.  He has taught and been a student of intercultural communication for more than 40 years, developing his experience through travel and international training and research projects.

While Professor of Communication at The College at Brockport, State University of New York, his reputation as a teacher led to his appointment as SUNY’s first director of faculty development.  He has retired as Dean of the Palm Desert Campus and Professor of Communication at California State University, San Bernardino, where he was named Outstanding Professor.  He has also been a visiting professor at Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand.

He has extensive experience in the areas of intercultural and international communication, negotiation mediation, and conflict management. He was one of the first scholars to introduce the study of conflict to the communication discipline with his text Conflict Resolution Through Communication (Harper & Row, 1973). He has subsequently published many other titles in this area, including the successful trade books Win-Win Negotiating: Turning Conflict into Agreement (Wiley, 1985) which has been translated into eight languages and a casebook on international conflict management, Constructive Conflict Management: Asia-Pacific Cases (SAGE, 1996) with Paul B. Pedersen. For several years, he conducted the training workshop “Managing Conflict Productively” for major corporations and government agencies throughout the U.S. Jandt continues to train volunteers learning to become mediators in the California justice system.

We had this book in my Intercultural Communication class because my instructor previously had the author of this book as her instructor back in California. In it, there's a lot of history about cultures, but I was dying for more depth into the theories and concepts. I felt this was more of a history book and was one of my least favorite texts to read from this semester.

I found this text book to be interesting in the way it was written and very informative. The only problem I found was that some of the examples seem to be a little out-dated. I thought that there were not quite enough vocabulary words in each chapter and some of the highlighted vocabulary did not really pertain to the main concepts of the chapters. Overall, this book is good simply because it is not boring.

A textbook demanded by my University, this books reads like all other books on culture and communication. For those living under a rock, it may generate awareness of foreign cultures but for the rest it is dull common sense.

This text was a great guide for my intercultural communications class. Each chapter is well organized, with great examples. It is written in a way that is easier to read and remember than some other text books I've had.

This text to me is far too wordy and the content is so dry that I literally could only read a page or two then I had to stop and rest my mind because nothing was sinking in. It's just too boring and almost feels less like it is explaining things to me and more like it is lecturing me with facts, numbers, and statistics that are just not necessary at all for learning about other cultures.
