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 An Introduction to Intercultural Communication 9th edition prepares today’s college students to successfully navigate our increasingly global community by integrating major current events into essential communication skills and concepts. To spark any 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 culture, history, and popular media. Each chapter integrates material on social media, as well as extensive new and real examples from recent international news and events. Throughout the textbook, Jandt reinforces the important roles that our own personal experiences, stories, and self-reflection play in building our intercultural understanding and competence.
