Intercultural Communication in Your Life
Where groups of people gather, there is always an elephant in the room: difference.
Elephants are remarkable, complex creatures which take up much space. Likewise, matters of race, culture, and difference require creative and complicated conversations―which moves us beyond “we are all alike” or “we all matter”―to understanding the significance of difference, as both a gift and a challenge.
Intercultural Communication in Your Life teaches readers the essential nature of difference, what to do with difference, and how to see difference beyond deficiency. It provides a lens for understanding the complex networks of communication in which we dwell.
The NEW second edition of Intercultural Communication in Your Life:
- Streamlines the vast research base for intercultural communication and speaks directly to the reader.
