Intercultural Communication: A Global Reader contains 36 articles showcasing the development and diversity of intercultural communication theories in countries such as China, Africa, the United States, New Zealand, Mexico, Egypt, and others. Themes and topics discussed include identity and communication, intercultural verbal and nonverbal processes and interactions, relationships, and ethics.
The Reader presents a wide-range of articles, showing the permeance of intercultural communication in today's world and in everyday life. Examples of topics included are:
Conflict management in organizations
The impact of the Internet and of online global communication
Gender differences in communication
The increasing influence of globalization
Health care
Creating a culture of peace
Half of the readings are from non-U.S. authors/scholars, presenting readers with a truly global perspective on intercultural communication.
The Reader may be used as a stand-alone text, an excellent companion to Fred E. Jandt's textbook An Introduction to Intercultural Communication: Identities in a Global Community, Fourth Edition, or in conjunction with other texts. The book is intended for the introductory intercultural communication course and is also of value for many courses in cultural studies, sociology, and anthropology.

Fred E. Jandt was born of second-generation German immigrants in the multicultural south-central region of Texas. After graduating from Texas Lutheran University and Stephen F. Austin State University, he received his doctorate in communication from Bowling Green State University. He has taught and been a student of intercultural communication for more than 40 years, developing his experience through travel and international training and research projects. While Professor of Communication at The College at Brockport, State University of New York, his reputation as a teacher led to his appointment as SUNY's first director of faculty development. He has retired as Dean of the Palm Desert Campus and Professor of Communication at California State University, San Bernardino, where he was named Outstanding Professor. He has also been a visiting professor at Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand. He has extensive experience in the areas of intercultural and international communication, negotiation mediation, and conflict management. He was one of the first scholars to introduce the study of conflict to the communication discipline with his text Conflict Resolution Through Communication (Harper & Row, 1973). He has subsequently published many other titles in this area, including the successful trade books Win-Win Negotiating: Turning Conflict Into Agreement (Wiley, 1985), which has been translated into eight languages, and a casebook on international conflict management, Constructive Conflict Management: Asia-Pacific Cases (SAGE, 1996) with Paul B. Pedersen. For several years, he conducted the training workshop "Managing Conflict Productively" for major corporations and government agencies throughout the United States. Jandt continues to train volunteers who are learning to become mediators in the California justice system.
