Présentation de l'éditeur :

Written in a conversational style, this book introduces students to the foundations of intercultural communication, a vibrant discipline within the field. Authors Stella Ting-Toomey and Leeva Chung take a multicontextual, inclusive approach that balances international and intercultural communication issues against U.S. domestic diversity issues. In addition to emphasizing a value-oriented perspective on intercultural encounters, the text contains a robust ethical chapter, complete with specific guidelines that will help students become ethical intercultural communicators. By integrating current empirical research with lively intercultural examples, the authors ask thought-provoking questions and pose ethical dilemmas for students to ponder. The text offers a sprawling treatment of such topics as ethnic and cultural identity change, culture shock and intercultural adjustment, romantic relationships and raising bicultural children, global identity challenges, and decision-making choices in intercultural ethics.

Revue de presse :

Ting-Toomey and Chung have put a tremendous amount of work and effort into compiling this textbook. The book is certainly worth recognition, and the effect this textbook may have in generating flexible, effective, and competent intercultural communicators is going to be enormous. (Mariya Aida Niendorf, Sociolinguistic Studies)
