This second edition of Neuliep's text continues to follow a model that examines communication within cultural, micro-cultural, environmental, socio-relational, and perceptual contexts. Each context is a combination of factors that include setting, situation, and circumstances. The author depicts his theory as a series of circles representing the idea that communication is defined by the interdependence of cultural contexts. Each chapter of the book focuses on a different context, highlighting influences such as values, ethnicity, physical geography, and attitudes, and then examines certain means of interaction. The result is a text that successfully shows students the stages of relationships, cross-cultural management, intercultural conflicts, and culture shock. Highlights of this second edition include: - New! Student Workbook containing exercises, assignments, and self-assessments now available free with this second edition of the text - New! Content rich web site for students and instructors - New! PowerPoint slides available on text web site - Cross-cultural dialogues - provide hypothetical scripts that demonstrate how various concepts discussed manifest themselves in human interaction - Self-report instruments - help students understand themselves as they learn the important concepts of intercultural communication - Extensive art programme - the text is illustrated with photos, charts, and graphs, making it more accessible

"Affordable and reader friendly...In today's multicultural world, it is important to keep in mind the context (setting) when communicating with people from different cultures. This text considers various communication contexts and emphasizes the proper skills needed to effectively communicate." (Deandre Poole)
It is an up-to-date presentation of the topic with very helpful student assessments as to where they fit in dealing with each issue. Objectives are clear for every chapter, thus enabling the students to identify what they should be able to know and do after completing each. One of the most helpful resources for faculty who travel and/or teach abroad in preparing them to communicate cross-culturally. (Robert Wright 2011-11-02)
