About This Title

Filled with thought-provoking examples, photos, quotes, cases, and stories that spark students’ interest and challenge them to reconsider existing viewpoints, the Seventh Edition of An Introduction to Intercultural Communication prepares today’s readers to successfully navigate our increasingly global community. Using a historical framework that places current topics in context, author Fred E. Jandt integrates media as a variable in advancing issues and ideas, offers a full chapter on women and family, and retains his non-biased presentation of all cultures and ethnic groups. Extremely relevant, this Seventh Edition includes a new focus on social media as well as new challenges evident in ethnic and religious conflict, the role of women, and technology.
