Cengage Learning; 9th edition
The latest edition of the best-selling book Communication Between Cultures (PDF) provides readers with a profound understanding and appreciation of a variety of cultures while also assisting them in the development of practical communication skills. The book is packed with examples and the most recent research. Part I introduces the field of communication and culture studies; Part II focuses on how culture can influence and alter our perceptions of the world around us; Part III applies the theory of intercultural communication to real-world scenarios; and Part IV demonstrates how knowledge can be put into practice. This is the only textbook that consistently highlights history and religion as essential aspects in intercultural communication, and it stands alone among its peers in that regard. The use of convincing examples encourages readers to critically analyze their own presuppositions, perceptions, and cultural biases, which enables them to comprehend the complex and nuanced ways in which culture influences communication. The ninth edition adds broader considerations of the effects of globalization, a new chapter on intercultural communication competence, and additional technological innovation analysis.
“This e-book is notable for the amount of depth it contains. It makes an honest effort to get to the bottom of the differences between cultures with regard to their histories and religions. This is in no way a “simplified” book by any stretch of the imagination.
The textbook is full of research and current examples, both of which help bring the concepts of cultural diversity and diversity in general to life for my students. My students find the topics and the text more interesting as a result of the approach, particularly when I challenge them to respond and react to activities or questions found at the end of the chapters or in the resource manual. The technique taken in the text helps to attain that objective, which is where I put much of my focus, rather than merely on the theory.
