A Global Reader
- Fred E. Jandt - California State University, San Bernardino (Retired)
Intercultural Communication | Sociology of Culture
The Reader presents a wide-range of articles, showing the permeance of intercultural communication in today’s world and in everyday life. Examples of topics included are:
- Conflict management in organizations
- The impact of the Internet and of online global communication
- Gender differences in communication
- The increasing influence of globalization
- Health care
- Creating a culture of peace
Half of the readings are from non-U.S. authors/scholars, presenting readers with a truly global perspective on intercultural communication.
The Reader may be used as a stand-alone text, an excellent companion to Fred E. Jandt’s textbook An Introduction to Intercultural Communication: Identities in a Global Community, Eighth Edition, or in conjunction with other texts. The book is intended for the introductory intercultural communication course and is also of value for many courses in cultural studies, sociology, and anthropology.

Very interesting text but there as there is only one topic from the course that's really covered in this book it is going to be on the recommended reading list for that week.
Very interesting book with nice inclusion of numerous varied case studies though so would still consider / recommend it for different courses
The book gives insight into scientific perspectives on culture and is used to supplement the more practical information, the students receive in my course
Wide range of articles suitable for a graduate seminar
An excellent addition to the Intro to Intercultural Communication. Very good for student work.
