Publisher Comments:

INTERCULTURAL COMMUNICATION FOR BUSINESS, Second Edition, examines the basis for culture, reviewing the work of social scientists, cultural anthropologists, and global managers on this emerging topic. Definitions of culture, issues of cultural change, and how cultures adapt are included, along with practical examples, case studies, and illustrations of how cultural issues are managed both domestically and internationally. Throughout the text, emphasis is placed on understanding eight dimensions of culture: context, identity, learning, environment, change, time, authority, and achievement. The text begins by providing a foundation for understanding cultural perceptions and stereotypes, and then focuses on understanding frames of reference; language codes, symbols, and context; and verbal and non-verbal communication. Next, it highlights issues of cultural identity regarding individual and collective identity, and examines the effects of culture on power and authority. Finally, it provides practical applications for intercultural communication.

Synopsis:

MODULE 6: INTERNATIONAL COMMUNICATION FOR BUSINESS looks at issues and opportunities that become increasingly important as the business world shrinks and grows more interdependent. As time zones blur and fewer restrictions are imposed on the global movement of capital, raw materials, finished goods, and human labor, people will cling fiercely to the ways in which they were enculturated as youngsters. Culture will become a defining characteristic, not only of peoples and nations,but of organizations and industries.
