Publisher Comments:

You may be able to succeed in business, or even in life without ever really trying, but you certainly cannot successfully navigate our increasingly global community without being able to communicate with those from other cultural or ethnic backgrounds. In this Fifth Edition, author Fred E. Jandt once again sparks student interest in this ever-changing field with an easy-to-read, highly accessible and exciting introduction to the art of effectively communicating across group barriers. An Introduction to Intercultural Communication: Identities in a Global Community explores the key concepts of communication and culture, addressing: group barriers that make such communication challenging; dimensions of culture; multiculturalism; women, family, and children; and more while retaining its unique, non-biased appreciation for all cultures and ethnic groups. Students acquire valuable verbal and nonverbal communication skills, learn to communicate in unfamiliar settings, and recognize cultures influence on self-perception. New to this Edition: The Fifth Edition is briefer than its predecessor (in response to instructor feedback) while still uniquely boasting both international and U.S. domestic examples a feature popular in prior editions Theories are more prominent in this edition, highlighted in new Focus on Theory sections that enrich student understanding and ground the practical material while retaining the texts immense readability Domestic and global examples have been updated throughout, including new material illustrating the effects of increased Muslim immigration to Western Europe giving the book timely appeal to students and professors alike Photo Essays have been added to illustratethe main concepts of each part of the text, bringing key points to life for the reader and enriching student comprehension

Valuable Ancillaries Enhance the Learning Experience: Improved Instructor Resources on CD are available to qualified adopters and include thoughtful test questions, engaging student activities, a useful sample syllabus, and more. An accompanying reader, Intercultural Communication: A Global Reader (SAGE, 2004; ISBN: 0-7619-2899-5), is also available and can be used alone or in conjunction with this text.

Synopsis:

This easy-to-read volume covers a wide range of material including a historical framework to view the development of current topics; an integration of media as a variable in the advancement of issues and ideas; and illustrative material, such as vignettes, quotes, cases, and stories to keep the student's attention and provoke thought while challenging existing viewpoints. It walks the student through the key concepts of communication and culture with chapters on barriers to intercultural communication; dimensions of culture; multiculturalism; women, family, and children; and culture's influence on perception. </p> <p></p> <p>New to the Fifth Edition: </p> <p>Focus on Theory boxes that ground the practical material in communication and social theory </p> <p>Each Part includes a Photo Essay that illustrates the main concepts of that section </p> <p>Updated information, including more internationally focused material and material on gender issues, gives the book timely appeal to professors and students

Synopsis:

Media Violence and Aggression counters the claim that media violence leads to widespread social aggression. It is different from all other works in this area in that it dispels this myth through a multiple-method analysis. Media Violence and Aggression argues that there are, indeed, media effects that derive from media violence, pornography, and other kinds of visual, cyberspace, and print based messages. But for psychologically well people, these effects are manageable and fall within what society and the culture can abide. For psychologically unwell people, however, the authors argue that media violence can create behavioural changes that are not within manageable limits. And it is these people about whom society should concern itself.
