As in the earlier edition, key domains (e.g. classroom, workplace, business, family) are covered with engaging real world case studies and practical exercises. The second edition provides additional and interesting new material and new perspectives, such as the concept of "turbulence" in intercultural communication, as well as updated references, accurately reflecting recent advances in the field.'
