Written in a conversational style, this book introduces students to the foundations of intercultural communication, a vibrant discipline within the field. Authors Stella Ting-Toomey and Leeva Chung take a multicontextual, inclusive approach that balances international and interculturalcommunication issues against U.S. domestic diversity issues. In addition to emphasizing a value-oriented perspective on intercultural encounters, the text contains a robust ethical chapter, complete with specific guidelines that will help students become ethical intercultural communicators. By integrating current empirical research with lively intercultural examples, the authors ask thought-provoking questions and pose ethical dilemmas for students to ponder. The text offers a sprawling treatment of such topics as ethnic and cultural identity change, culture shock and interculturaladjustment, romantic relationships and raising bicultural children, global identity challenges, and decision-making choices in intercultural ethics.
Stella Ting-Toomey is Professor of Human Communication Studies at California State University, Fullerton. Leeva Chung is Professor of Communication Studies at the University of San Diego.
