Praise for Principles of Intercultural Communication

“I commend the author on up-to-date and accurate scholarship - what rich, varied, and seminal examples he provided. That is where the text grabbed me and I was most able to apply the principles introduced.”

Scherrie A. Foster, Fond du Lac College

“Each chapter consistently fosters an overall inquisitive and constructively curious approach to the topic of intercultural communication. Each chapter continues to fuel this curiosity in such a manner that sufficiently enables the reader to develop an intercultural outlook on the world.”

Kelby K. Halone, University of Tennessee “The main strength of the book, in my view, is the plethora of examples provided, especially the case studies and side trips that allow the reader/student to apply his/her knowledge to real like scenarios.”

Antonio C. LaPastina, Texas A&M University
