Reviews

This is an excellent introduction to the field of intercultural communication, as equally useful for anybody working internationally as to the university classroom. New material for this edition can be a bridge to contemporary history and current events. Allan Goodwin, Nagoya University of Foreign Studies, Japan This new edition addresses topics of urgent interest to the intercultural communicator. While the book was already a comprehensive guide to moving across and between cultures, the additional material responds to the rise of nationalist populism, hate speech on social media, and the demonisation of the `Other.' Educators will find this a timely and wide-ranging resource that tackles difficult issues in challenging times. John Corbett, University of Sao Paulo, Brazil
