In today's globalized world of international contact and multicultural interaction, effective intercultural communication is increasingly a prerequisite for social harmony and organizational success. The APA Handbook of Intercultural Communication illustrates how the practical, problem-solving approach of applied linguistics can illuminate a range of issues that arise in real-life intercultural interaction. Experts from a range of social science disciplines, including psychology, applied thoughts, and anthropology, describe, analyze, and where possible, propose solutions to language-related problems. This book presents theoretical and applied examinations of topics that have contemporary relevance in intercultural settings, including power, dominance, discrimination, social boundaries, taboos, conflict, and identity. Applied chapters cover intercultural communication in school, work, and health care settings as well as in intimate relationships and in training environments. When we use language to interact with one another, we become involved in a continuous and dynamic process of exchange. This fact makes interpersonal communication a fascinating area for behavioral research. During the give-and-take of discourse, the communicators exchange facts, ideas, views, opinions, emotions, and intentions in such a way as to enhance or impede social relationships; create, maintain, and adapt identities; and create or resolve conflicts. In the APA Handbook of Interpersonal Communication, distinguished scholars apply the problem-solving perspectives of applied linguistics to answer fundamental questions. The volume is divided into two parts that examine both theoretical and applied topics. Thus, the contributors critically appraise the relevance of applied linguistics to not only understanding but also solving everyday language-related problems.

The seventh volume of the distinguished series International and Intercultural Communication Annuals is published for the first time by SAGE. It is also the first volume to be presented in a new format: theme-oriented volumes that examine key issues in intercultural communication. Twenty four leaders in the field contribute original essays that review the progress made toward developing theories of intercultural communication. Theories based on traditional communication perspectives, new theories that are unique to this new emerging discipline, and contributions from such areas as philosophy, social psychology and linguistics are described. `If one were to offer a seminar designed to take stock of theory in intercultural communication, this volume would be a good choice of text. One might well argue that it is the only choice...this book provides the beginnings of order in a field that has prided itself on its ecumenical rather than its ordered self-view.' -- Journal of Communication, Summer 1984

I am often asked by such people how they can develop their professional abilities. I can now refer them to the new Handbook of Intercultural Training. The profession has acquired an up-to-date tool to orient those who will orient others." --Geert Hofstede, The University of Hong Kong, School of Business "In putting together this second edition of the Handbook of Intercultural Training, editors Dan Landis and Rabi S.
