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

Communicating in the Third Space aims to clarify Homi K. Bhabha’s theory of the third space of enunciation by reconstructing its philosophical, sociological, geographical, and political meaning with attention to the special advantages and ambiguities that arise as it is applied in practical--as well as theoretical--contexts. The idea of "third space" conceives the encounter of two distinct and unequal social groups as taking place in a special third space of enunciation where culture is disseminated and displaced from the interacting groups, making way for the invention of a hybrid identity, whereby these two groups conceive themselves to partake in a common identity relating to shared space and common dialogue. The essays collected in Communicating in the Third Space--including a preface by Bhabha himself--brilliantly introduce readers to this exciting topic in Cultural and Post-Colonial theory and offers insightful elaboration and critique of the meaning and relevance of life in the "third space." With a preface by Homi K. Bhabha.
