Understanding Intercultural Communication introduces students to the foundations of intercultural communication, a growing sub-discipline within Communication. Ting-Toomey and Chung are both well known and active in the scholarly community, and their book features a theme of flexible intercultural communication, positioning itself as an antidote to texts that are prescriptive and rules-y or overly theoretical. Praised for its attention to pedagogy and its holistic approach, the book also avoids some of the pitfalls of the market leader, Samovar, written from a fairly masculinist and US frame.
This book got a toehold in its very first edition, and there is certainly room to grow. Reviews were quite strong, and suggest a book that has some growth in it.
