Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This text seems perfectly geared to the current generation of highly pragmatic students, who are eager for structure, for information that is organized and repeated for easy assimilation, and for steady readouts on how they are doing. -TECHNICAL COMMUNICATIONThis Third Edition of Intercultural Communication: A Contextual Approach is a state-of-the-art introduction to the processes that are critical for successful and competent intercultural communication. Author James W. Neuliep advances his contextual model of intercultural communication to examine communication within cultural, micro-cultural, environmental, socio-relational, and perceptual contexts. Key Features: Emphasizes a contextual model: Neuliep's model presents a series of interdependent contexts that are graphically represented by a series of concentric circles. Neuliep begins his presentation with the outermost concentric circle of the model - the cultural context - and moves inward, chapter by chapter, towards more specific contexts of communication. Each chapter focuses on one context and the combination of factors included within that context such as setting, situation, and circumstances. Incorporates new & updated material: This Third Edition provides updated research, statistics, and sources. Middle Eastern cultures are presented throughout and Hispanics, African-Americans, Hmong, and Amish are profiled micro-cultural groups. There is also an expanded discussion of intercultural training. Provides learning tools: Naturalistic, cross-cultural dialogues throughout the book demonstrate how key theoretical concepts manifest themselves in human interaction. Valid and reliable self-assessment instruments that measureconcepts such as intercultural communication apprehension, ethnocentrism, individualism, and collectivism, are included in virtually every chapter. These instruments help students understand themselves and evaluate their performance and skill development as they learn the important concepts of intercultural communication.

Synopsis:

This introduction to intercultural communication provides students with a clear model for examining communication within cultural, micro-cultural, environmental, socio-relational, and perceptual contexts. The author depicts his theory as a series of circles representing the idea that communication is defined by the interdependence of cultural contexts. His presentation of contexts begins with the outermost cultural circle of the model and moves inward toward the most specific traits of communication--verbal and non-verbal messages. Each chapter focuses on one context and the combination of factors included within that context--setting, situation, and circumstances. The text also highlights influences such as values, ethnicity, physical geography, and attitudes and then examines certain means of interaction, including body language, eye contact, and the exchange of words.
