This volume provides an up to date overview and assessment of intercultural communication theories. Advancements stimulated by empirical research resulting from the 1983 title in the same series, Intercultural Communication Theory, are reflected in this volume. In addition to revised chapters on such topics as constructivist theory, coordinated management theory, convergence theory, and adaptation in intercultural relationships, a number of new perspectives have been developed, including discussions on intercultural tranformation and network theory. Contributors from UK and Australia serve to broaden the scope. Just as the earlier volume helped to define the field, Theorizing Intercultural Communication is an important contrib

How do people adapt to life in a foreign country? Is the process different for immigrants, refugees and diplomats, or do all individuals in a new cultural milieu share common adaptation experiences? This multi-disciplinary volume considers the cross-cultural adaptation process from psychological, sociological, anthropological and communication perspectives. Using diverse case examples, it integrates theoretical and empirical research and presents studies of both long- and short-term adaptation.

The methodology behind intercultural communication research has been largely neglected by scholars of intercultural communication. The aim of this volume is to advance the study of intercultural communication and move away from the current abstract stage of development. The editors have collected contributions which examine the skills necessary to have a firm grounding in general methodological issues, research techniques, statistics, methods for doing comparative sociology, and methods of traditional anthropology. Essays also deal with problems arising from such research, and the sociology of knowledge of intercultural communication as opposed to cross-cultural communication. `Two features make this volume exceptional.

Bridging Differences: Effective Intergroup Communication is based on the assumption that the processes operating when we communicate with people from other groups are the same processes operating when we communicate with people from our own groups. Author William B. Gudykunst has written this book from the perspective of "communicating with strangers" and addresses how factors related to our group memberships (e.g., inaccurate and unfavorable stereotypes of members of other cultures and ethnic groups) can cause us to misinterpret the messages we receive from members of those groups. Designed for students taking courses in Intercultural Communication or Intergroup Communication, Bridging Differences is also useful for many courses in Cultural Studies, Anthropology, Sociology, and Management.

This innovative book contains studies of personal relationships from a variety of non-western cultures, and leaves behind the western biases that are typical of most research and theorizing done in this expanding area. Chapters focus on personal communication practices in countries including Iran, Brazil, Mexico, China, Japan and Korea. The editors cover the major theories that explain communication across cultures through both emic and etic approaches, by examining how members of a culture understand their own communication, and by comparing specific aspects of communication across cultures. They also suggest areas for future research.

The seventh volume of the distinguished series International and Intercultural Communication Annuals is published for the first time by SAGE. It is also the first volume to be presented in a new format: theme-oriented volumes that examine key issues in intercultural communication. Twenty four leaders in the field contribute original essays that review the progress made toward developing theories of intercultural communication. Theories based on traditional communication perspectives, new theories that are unique to this new emerging discipline, and contributions from such areas as philosophy, social psychology and linguistics are described. `If one were to offer a seminar designed to take stock of theory in intercultural communication, this volume would be a good choice of text. One might well argue that it is the only choice...this book provides the beginnings of order in a field that has prided itself on its ecumenical rather than its ordered self-view.' -- Journal of Communication, Summer 1984
