Book Description

Packed with the latest research and examples; bestselling Communication Between Cultures 9th Edition (PDF) equips readers with a deep understanding and appreciation of various cultures while helping them develop practical communication skills. Part I presents the study of communication and culture; Part II emphasizes the ability of culture to shape and change our view of reality; Part III puts the theory of intercultural communication into practice; and Part IV transforms knowledge into action. This is the only textbook to constantly emphasize history and religion as key variables in intercultural communication. Convincing examples help readers examine their own assumptions; perceptions; and cultural biases—so they can understand the profound and subtle ways culture affects communication. The 9th edition provides expanded discussions of the impact of globalization; a new chapter on intercultural communication competence; and more analysis of new technology.

Reviews

This ebook has a depth to it that is notable. It really does try to get to the heart of why cultures vary in terms of their religion and history. This is definitely not a ‘dumbed-down’ ebook in any way.”

The textbook is rich with research and recent examples; which brings the ideas of diversity and culture to life for my students. The approach makes the subjects and text inviting to my students; especially when I challenge them to respond and react to activities or questions from either the end of the chapters or from the resource manual. My emphasis is on the application; not just theory; and the approach of the text assists achieve that goal.”
