Understanding Intercultural Communication

Third Edition

Stella Ting-Toomey and Leeva Chung

  • UIC3 is written for students to increase appreciation, knowledge, and skills about intercultural communication.
  • Well-balanced focus on both global/intercultural communication issues and U.S. domestic diversity issues.
  • The pedagogical approach to this book emphasizes a student-empowering philosophy which invites curiosity and motivation to learn more about intercultural communication.
  • Calls attention throughout the text to the important role of technology in affecting intercultural communication message exchange and meaning construction processes.

New to this Edition:

  • New opening stories (a favorite of many of the students and teachers) in several chapters
  • Emphasis on the importance of adaptability and creativity in cultivating intercultural communication flexibility in this globally turbulent, changing time
  • An abundance of contemporary intercultural stories, news clips, and real-life diversity experiences to connect and resonate with the students through which we encourage them to share their stories and identity struggles, challenges, resilience, and triumphs
  • Thought-provoking end-point discussion and practical application questions for students and teachers to generate productive dialogue about flexible (or inflexible) intercultural communication practice as lifelong learners of all things intercultural
