We live in an increasingly more globalized world, where living and working with people of various cultures is a nearly everyday occurrence. These interactions, combined with ever-growing opportunities for students to explore and study in foreign settings, make it important to master effective ways to engage and learn from these experiences. Intercultural Communication will engage readers interested in developing intercultural competence with an eye towards fostering diverse and vibrant communities that coexist peacefully. The authors begin by defining competent communication and describing how it contributes to peaceful communities before considering how cultural differences relate to the effects of cultural frames, emotions, and nonverbal and verbal communication. The second half of the book surveys how culture influences friendships, families, classrooms, workplaces, the media, and our visits to cultures different from our own. Recognizing the effects of these influences allows readers to take advantage of opportunities and overcome obstacles to more fully immerse themselves in a different way of life. Each chapter offers various boxed inserts with important and entertaining insights to supplement topics and provide opportunities for discussion.

In the fully updated Seventh Edition of Intercultural Communication: A Contextual Approach, bestselling author James W. Neuliep provides a clear contextual model (visually depicted by a series of concentric circles) for examining communication within cultural, microcultural, environmental, sociorelational, and perceptual contexts. Students are first introduced to the broadest context—the cultural component of the model—and progress chapter by chapter through the model to the most specific dimensions of communication. Each chapter focuses on one context and explores the combination of factors within that context, including setting, situation, and circumstances. Highlighting values, ethnicity, physical geography, and attitudes, the book examines means of interaction, including body language, eye contact, and exchange of words, as well as the stages of relationships, cross-cultural management, intercultural conflict, and culture shock.

The study questions and activities featured in each chapter together with suggestions for further reading make this Reader an invaluable resource for undergraduate and graduate seminars alike." Claire Kramsch, University of California, Berkeley, USA "This volume covers all the key topics, both basic conceptual and theoretical questions and a broad range of empirical issues and perspectives related to different settings and different parts of the world. It is really global in its coverage. This book will give readers a good grasp of the field as it is being developed throughout the world."

With 22 varied readings from eminent authorities in the field as well as cutting edge material from new researchers, the Reader explores the breadth and depth of the subject as well as providing a valuable overview for both student and scholar. Each reading has been carefully selected to both showcase the best thinking and latest research, and to reflect the international nature of the field. Each part begins with a clear and comprehensive introduction, and is enhanced by discussion questions, suggested activities and far-reaching further reading sections. There is a final section offering advice on how to perform research in this area. This is an essential text for all students and researchers in the area of language and intercultural communication.
