Intercultural Communication from the Author: James W. Neuliep. In the fully updated Seventh Edition of Intercultural Communication: A Contextual Approach, bestselling author James W. Neuliep provides a clear contextual model (visually depicted by a series of concentric circles) for examining communication within cultural, microcultural, environmental, sociorelational, and perceptual contexts. Students are first introduced to the broadest context—the cultural component of the model—and progress chapter by chapter through the model to the most specific dimensions of communication. Each chapter focuses on one context and explores the combination of factors within that context, including setting, situation, and circumstances. Highlighting values, ethnicity, physical geography, and attitudes, the book examines means of interaction, including body language, eye contact, and exchange of words, as well as the stages of relationships, cross-cultural management, intercultural conflict, and culture shock.

Intercultural Communication from the Author: Ron Scollon. The third edition of this lively introduction serves as a guide to the main concepts and problems of intercultural communication. As the field has evolved, new trends and directions in research have emerged; this fully revised edition explores many of these while maintaining the core of the classic book. The volume includes a new chapter devoted to "Forms of Discourse," which examines how different modes and media, such as the internet, affect intercultural communication. Expanded discussions on advances in information technology, gender discourse, and sexuality are also included, as are discussions of core areas of interest such as the discourse of corporations and professional organizations and intergenerational discourse. In the revision, the authors have also made changes designed to integrate the book fully within the classroom, including end-of-chapter discussion questions, further references, and a "Researching Interdiscourse Communication" section for student projects. Grounded in interactional sociolinguistics and discourse analysis, this work integrates theoretical principles and methodological advice, presenting students, researchers, and practitioners with a comprehensive and unified resource.

Intercultural Communication from the Author: Tracy Novinger. Successfully communicating with people from another culture requires learning more than just their language. While fumbling a word or phrase may cause embarrassment, breaking the unspoken cultural rules that govern personal interactions can spell disaster for businesspeople, travelers, and indeed anyone who communicates across cultural boundaries. To help you avoid such damaging gaffes, Tracy Novinger has compiled this authoritative, practical guide for deciphering and following "the rules" that govern cultures, demonstrating how these rules apply to the communication issues that exist between the United States and Mexico. Novinger begins by explaining how a major proportion of communication within a culture occurs nonverbally through behavior and manners, shared attitudes, common expectations, and so on. Then, using real-life examples and anecdotes, she pinpoints the commonly occurring obstacles to communication that can arise when cultures differ in their communication techniques. She shows how these obstacles come into play in contacts between the U.S. and Mexico and demonstrates that mastering the unspoken rules of Mexican culture is a key to cementing business and social relationships. Novinger concludes with nine effective, reliable principles for successfully communicating across cultures.
