Today, students are more familiar with other cultures than ever before because of the media, Internet, local diversity, and their own travels abroad. Using a social constructionist framework, Inter/Cultural Communication provides today's students with a rich understanding of how culture and communication affect and effect each other. Weaving multiple approaches together to provide a comprehensive understanding of and appreciation for the diversity of cultural and intercultural communication, this text helps students become more aware of their own identities and how powerful their identities can be in facilitating change—both in their own lives and in the lives of others.

In The Press

There is so much here, I could go on and on...There is a full range of approaches to understanding culture from the perspectives of communication theory and social psychology. It provides a good overview and an update for those of us who don't get to see it all put together in the same place very often. At the same time, for those of us who don't have an airline ticket to New York, the book provides a deep sense of how diversity discourse is constructed, expressed and propagated in the USA.
