"Teaching from an intercultural textbook that utilizes a critical, social justice perspective, and one that is grounded in the reality of globalization is so refreshing. Students relate very well to the contemporary examples Sorrells utilizes...I love teaching from it because it raises the level of discussion sparked in the classroom and because the intercultural praxis model motivates students to apply what they are learning. It is a text that reframes conversations in the field in ways that just make sense!" - Sheena Malhotra, California State University, Northridge Intercultural Communication: Globalization and Social Justice introduces students to the complex relationships, structures, and contexts that shape intercultural communication in the new millennium. This book examines intercultural communication within the geopolitical, economic, and cultural context of globalization and offers a dynamic and complex understanding of culture that addresses the many challenges we face today - from discrimination, racial profiling, and ethnic conflict to local and global wealth disparities. Kathryn Sorrells takes a social justice approach, providing a framework to create a more equitable world through communication.
