Understanding Intercultural Communication offers a comprehensive look at the foundational concepts of the discipline. Employing the dynamic theme offlexible intercultural communication, it effectively bridges the gap between theory and practice.

  • I found this book quite interesting. Surprisingly so. I purchased it for a communication studies course at college, and while the course was pretty boring the book was enjoyable to read. It really directs the all the different factors when a person moves to another country or how different cultures can interact.

  • When I received my book it was falling apart. Every time I open the book another page falls out. The book has literally ripped in half just by opening it. I have tapped so many pages back in but it doesn't even look like a book anymore. This was my first time using amazon rentals and I am afraid to try it again.

  • I was assigned this text as an assignment. Written from an entirely secular viewpoint, the writers provide thorough rationale for today's culture to better understand how and why to relate and include other cultures in life, business, and day-to-day living.
    As a Christian, I found this book a rich and rewarding plea for us to better serve, lead, and impact communities through the process of understanding and including--rather than isolating.
    A great tool!

  • College Books...Just have To Have Them!

  • Great book for required course. Well written, with interesting examples and concept coverage. Rented due to cost, would love to have been able to afford it.

  • Cerritos College, Norwalk, California Speech communication department uses this textbook. Their department Chair was student of the author of this textbook. When depart chair was only a grad student at CSUF the professor who helped the department chair of Speech Department with her thesis for graduate degree was the author of this book and at the time Professor at CSUF graduate school. This is great book to learn from. Other than the readings, which I am reading Chapter 4 Keys to Understanding Cultural and Ethnic Identities, it's good to have other activities in class to help digest all the theories from the book with interactions in classroom amongst students.

  • The book was very torn and a section of it wasn't even attached but, I can deal with that. The price on it was wonderful so I don't really mind how torn it is since it does still have all the pages.

  • A little too indoctrinating for my liking.
