MEDIA REVIEWS

"Intercultural Communication discusses fascinating concepts such as "culturism," "a West as steward discourse," and "critical cosmopolitanism" and illustrates them with reconstructed ethnographic accounts. This approach makes the concepts relatable to the reader and promotes lively discussions in the classroom. Updated readings promote a wide understanding of intercultural communication by including works from a multitude of disciplines such as communication and philosophy reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of the field."

Dr Ako Inuzuka, University of Pennsylvania, USA

"Recent events have dramatically changed our ways of living and interacting, highlighting our need and desire to connect with others and flourish together. This latest edition of Intercultural Communication could not be more welcome or relevant, providing precisely the conceptual, practical and research tools needed. The authors identify a set of practical guidelines or 'disciplines', for participating in intercultural experiences, and offer detailed deconstructions of a wide range of examples and scenarios which feel fresh and authentic. The foregrounding of investigation and mini-research projects as a means of applying the disciplines in practice, is a real strength. The book cleverly mirrors the very process it is seeking to illuminate; it is an invitation to engage, investigate and act with understanding, critical awareness and ethical responsibility. Holliday, Kullman and Hyde's offering is comprehensive and incisive; a must read for advanced students and emerging researchers of intercultural communication."

Dr Michelle Kohler, University of South Australia
