Long description:
A highly interdisciplinary overview of the wide spectrum of current international research and professional practice in intercultural communication, this is a key reference book for students, lecturers and professionals alike. Key examples of contrastive, interactive, imagological and interlingual approaches are discussed, as well as the impact of cultural, economic and socio-political power hierarchies in cultural encounters, essential for contemporary research in critical intercultural communication and postcolonial studies. The Handbook also explores the spectrum of professional applications of that research, from intercultural teaching and training to the management of culturally mixed groups, facilitating use by professionals in related fields. Theories are introduced systematically using ordinary language explanations and examples, providing an engaging approach to readers new to the field. Students and researchers in a wide variety of disciplines, from cultural studies to linguistics, will appreciate this clear yet in-depth approach to an ever-evolving contemporary field.

'Distinguishing itself from an already crowded field of reference resources, The Cambridge Handbook of Intercultural Communication is comprehensive, well organized, and bridges disciplines. With its in-depth examination of theoretical frames germane to this broad field, the handbook will be valuable for scholars in the fields of linguistics, psychology, education, business, and the many other fields in which global connectedness and culture are core concepts ... This handbook will be valuable across the scholarly spectrum.' D. M. Moss, Choice
