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.

Inter Cultural Communication from the Author: Anastacia Kurylo. 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.

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 Competence from the Author: Richard Lee Wiseman. Published in cooperation with the Speech Communication Association Division on International and Intercultural Communication "The editors should be commended, as the volume presents the latest thinking and research from scholars within the intercultural field and, more broadly, from the speech communication discipline. For those interested in learning more about various communication-based theories and approaches to the study of intercultural competence I highly recommend they take a close look at this book. I found the introductory chapter by Koester, Wiseman, and Sanders extremely valuable in integrating the various perspectives represented by the authors. Their discussion of the starting points for the study of the intercultural communication competence. . . was very well written. Part I focused on conceptual issues, and it includes and excellent review article by Judith Martin about the various approaches taken in the study of intercultural communication competence. William Gudykunst's anxiety/uncertainty management chapter is perhaps the clearest and most practical extension to date of his extensive theoretical research program on uncertainty and anxiety reduction processes. It is tightly written with examples and elaborated explanations of key constructs that relate to intercultural effectiveness. I found this chapter [Myron Lustig and Brian Spitzberg's methodological concerns relevant to the study of intercultural communication competence] to be one of the most targeted analyses of research methods for examining communication competence within the distinctly different intercultural arena. This chapter provides a blueprint for research design decision making on studying the difficult phenomenon of intercultural communication competence. . . .Donal Carbaugh's ethnographic approach for identifying the verbal means and meanings in social interaction is exciting, creative, insightful, and practical. I highly recommend Intercultural Communication Competence for a graduate-level theory course in intercultural communication and, more generally, for any course that focuses on cross-cultural interaction. Further, this book would be a welcome addition for a graduate-level intercultural research course.Overall, Wiseman and Koester have edited a high-quality intercultural book that focuses on a complex communication phenomenon. I urge anyone interested in this important topic to read Intercultural Communication Competence. --Mitchell R. Hammer, The American University, International Journal of Intercultural Relations Contemporary societies have witnessed the greatest migration of human populations in recorded history. Accordingly, interactions among citizens of these societies are becoming increasingly intercultural. By gathering the most current research, theories, and methods from the leading scholars in the field, Intercultural Communication Competence is the state-of-the-art study on intercultural communication competence and effectiveness. Part I analyzes the conceptual decisions made in intercultural communication competence research by examining decisions regarding conceptualization, operationalization, research design, and sampling. In Part Two, the contributors present four different theoretical orientations while illustrating how each person's theoretical bias directs the focus of research. The essays in the final section examine both qualitative and quantitative approaches to intercultural communication competence research. With exemplary conceptual and empirical studies, scholars, researchers, teachers, and students alike will find a wealth of information in this tightly edited book.
