Intercultural Communication: A Contextual Approach Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this fully updated Fifth Edition of Intercultural Communication, author James W. Neuliep provides a clear contextual circular model for examining communication within cultural, micro-cultural, environmental, socio-relational, perceptual contexts, and verbal and nonverbal codes. The text begins with the broadest context; the cultural component of the model and progresses chapter by chapter through each component of the model. The later chapters then apply the model to the development and maintenance of intercultural relationships, the management of intercultural conflict, intercultural management, intercultural adaptation, culture shock, and intercultural competence.

Book News Annotation:

Based on the contextual model of intercultural communication, this text for a first undergraduate course features examples from an amazing variety of cultures, including Hmong, Amish, Navajo, and Arab American, as well as Latino, African American, and Japanese. The text introduces the need for intercultural communication, then covers cultural, micro-cultural, environmental, perceptual, and socio-relational contexts. There is also material on verbal and nonverbal codes, developing intercultural relationships, intercultural conflict, and intercultural communication in organizations. Learning features include discussion questions, self-assessments to assess student attitudes, and boxes offering student voices across cultures (new to this edition). This fifth edition offers several other new features: ethics questions, discussion of lesbian and gay culture, and a focus on the role of modern communication technology. Neuliep is affiliated with St. Norbert College. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
