Samovar, Larry A., Ed.; Porter, Richard E., Ed.
The major premise of this collection of articles and essays is that successful intercultural communication is a matter of highest importance if man and society are to survive. The purpose of the book is to create a new understanding of intercultural communication and assist the reader in developing his own skills in this area. The book provides introductory readings in the field of intercultural communication for use by students of speech communication, business, political science, and related disciplines. The book is divided into six closely related aspects of intercultural communication: (1) general concepts; (2) social psychological factors; (3) intercultural language; (4) nonverbal language; (5) effective practices; and (6) research. Each division includes a preliminary synopsis and summary. A list of suggested readings accompanies each article. (Author/LG)
