MEDIA REVIEWS
This much needed handbook provides the latest scholarship and work on intercultural competence, which is so vitally necessary in pursuit of mutual understanding and peace in today's world." -- Desmond Tutu
"This handbook pays attention to both cultural differences and differences in the tasks that constitute international careers. It will be an indispensable guide for those who plan to work in the global society." -- Harry C. Triandis
"No serious scholar of intercultural research can avoid reading and adding this book to their library. Professor Deardorff has provided the most exhaustive exposition to date of this most important topic. Future Handbooks will be measured against this volume and many will be found wanting." -- Dan Landis
"This book brings together a stellar group of contributors and is essential reading for everyone involved in working across cultures, in all fields. The contributors to this volume will help us live, work and play together, and will bring needed skills to those whose job it is to cross cultural boundaries and encourage others to do the same." -- Humphrey Tonkin
"This is a sourcebook for the scholar and the practitioner alike - linkingtheory and practice, and raising the reader's awareness to the complexity ofinteracting between cultures. And awareness is the first step towardscompetence." -- Geert Hofstede
"When we make meaningful and deep connections across languages and cultures, we not only build critical 21st century skills; we build our capacity for understanding and compassion. This collection of essays provides a thoughtful exploration of that transformation process and how it can contribute to a more peaceful world." -- Carol Bellamy
"Competent intercultural communication is a worthy and often elusive goal. Considerable progress has been made by scholars and practitioners of intercultural competence, and this Handbook accurately reflects those developments. It provides, in a comprehensive source, both the contemporary research and the practical applications of intercultural competence scholarship." -- Jolene Koester
"No matter the field (psychology, nursing, public health, medicine, sociology), the settings (academic, practice, community), or country, this is a must read book for anyone who has direct contact with individuals representing the globe." -- Guerda Nicholas
"I was delighted to review this book for SAGE in its earlier rendition and am thrilled to see this volume come to fruition. Each of the three parts (Conceptualizing, Applying, and Assessment and Research) provides a fresh and comprehensive examination of this incredibly important concept. Praises to Sage, Darla Deardorff and the contributors for including in Part 1, Conceptualizing Intercultural Competence, numerous chapters that invite us to understand this phenomenon from multiple cultural perspectives. This handbook is a must have for practitioners and educators dedicated to the development of intercultural competency." -- Barbara Kappler Mikk
