Basic Concepts of Intercultural Communication: Selected Readings.
Bennett, Milton J., Ed.
This collection of articles, with a developmental learning focus, explores the core building blocks of intercultural communication. The articles in the collection represent the theory-into-practice school of intercultural communication. The collection's goal is to present basic concepts from a variety of perspectives which, when taken together, explicate the practical aspects of intercultural relations and present a compelling case for improving intercultural communication skills through education and training. Following a preface and an introduction, "Intercultural Communication: A Current Perspective" (Milton J. Bennett), articles in the collection are: "Communication in a Global Village" (Dean Barnlund); "The Power of Hidden Differences" (Edward T. Hall); "Multicultural Education: Development, Dimensions, and Challenges" (James A. Banks); "Science and Linguistics" (Benjamin Lee Whorf); "Culture: A Perceptual Approach" (Marshall R. Singer); "Interactions between North Americans and Japanese: Considerations of Communication Style" (Stella J. Ramsey); "Black and White Cultural Styles in Pluralistic Perspective" (Thomas Kochman); "Cultural Assumptions and Values" (Edward C. Stewart; Jack Danelian; Robert J. Foster); "Stumbling Blocks in Intercultural Communication" (La Ray M. Barna); "Overcoming the Golden Rule: Sympathy and Empathy" (Milton J. Bennett); and "Beyond Cultural Identity: Reflections on Multiculturalism" (Peter S. Adler). Contains a list of 42 additional readings, a subject index, and an author index. (NKA)
