Useful for speech, communication, education, psychology, sociology, and even anthropology students, the best selling Communication Between Cultures by Larry A. Samovar, Richard E. Porter, and Edwin R. McDaniel is a reliable reference packed with solid information and the most recent researches in the field. It is formulated for introductory-level courses and explains all the fundamental principles of intercultural communication and how they transform relationships. Communication Between Cultures (ISBN 9780495567448) approaches the subject as an ever-evolving discipline; it discusses the challenges of communicating in the future, the roots of reality, cultural explanations of life and death, cultural identity, shaping interpretations of reality through cultural values, and the essentials of partnership. Samovar, Porter, and McDaniel also discuss nonverbal communication: the messages of action, space, time, and silence, cultural influences on context in the business, educational, and health care settings, and venturing into a new culture: becoming competent. The textbook is unlike other communication textbooks because it goes beyond theory and actually discusses how culture is able to modify or alter reality, how theory can be put into practice in intercultural communication, and how knowledge can be turned into action. It encourages students to apply what they have learned. Already in its 7th edition, it has been improved with more topics, including religious traditions, as well as new learning evaluation tools and helpful ‘remember this,' ‘consider this,' and ‘imagine this' boxes. Authors Samovar, Porter, and McDaniel all teach in prestigious universities – San Diego State University, California State University, and Aichi Shukotuko University, respectively.
