The book consists of five, concise chapters and an epilogue. The first chapter identifies elements of Chinese culture that deal with personal relationships, and discusses how they affect patterns of Chinese behavior and communications. The second chapter looks at how personal relationships develop in Chinese culture, and how the Chinese perspective on personal relationships is reflected in the ways that people communicate. The third chapter explores how the Chinese communicate, and identifies four main characteristics of such communication. The fourth chapter analyzes the concept of "face," showing that it has several facets and nuances that influence how the Chinese communicate. The fifth chapter discusses the various ways that Chinese and North Americans miscommunicate, and suggests some guidelines to reduce such miscommunication. In the epilogue, the authors acknowledge the limitations of their research, and suggest lines of future research to better understand Chinese forms of communication.
Although the book is a serious, scholarly one, it is written in a fairly readable style. A reader does not need technical expertise in the subject matter to understand the book.Read more ›

It's a very expensive book for being only 100 pages or so. It's decently written and researched, just pricey, even as textbooks go.Published 18 months ago by A. Lokey
