Intercultural Communication Reviews

'This book is a useful reminder that culture is constructed, perpetuated and changed through small acts of communication in everyday life. It offers a clear, practical methodology for escaping the essentialization of people, behaviors and events ... Most enjoyable are the illustrative anecdotes of intercultural (mis)communication presented for analysis and interpretation.' - Claire Kramsch, University of California, Berkeley, USA
