"One of the best textbooks in intercultural communication for undergraduate students"--Mo Bahk, California State University, San Bernardino
How does the Syrian refugee crisis, the election of Donald Trump, and the increasing number of "walls" being built to control immigration affect our ability to communicate and function across cultures?
The highly anticipated Ninth Edition of An Introduction to Intercultural Communication prepares today's students to successfully navigate our increasingly global community by integrating major current events into essential communication skills and concepts. To spark student interest, award-winning professor and best-selling author Fred E. Jandt offers unique insights into intercultural communication, at home and abroad, through an emphasis on history, culture, and popular media. Each chapter integrates material on social media, as well as extensive new examples from recent international news and events. Throughout the text, Jandt reinforces the important roles that our own stories, personal experiences, and self-reflection play in building our intercultural understanding and competence.
