"AmongUS" presents readings from individuals whose intercultural experiences give insights on how to achieve a fair multicultural society where cultural identities are celebrated and maintained. The essays provide a rich source of materials to teach a broad array of interpersonal, sociological, and psychological concepts that apply to educational, business, and cultural settings. The authors have arranged the book around four themes: Identity, Negotiating Intercultural Competence, Racism and Prejudice, and Belonging to Multiple Cultures. New to the 2nd EditionA new text organization -- rearrangement of the sections and of the essays within each section -- provides a better depiction of the processes when living in an intercultural world. 10 new essays enhance and broaden the text's range of intercultural voices and experiences. Included among these new essays are "second" essays from authors (Mei Lin Swanson Kroll, Alfred J. Guillame, Jr., Vickie Marie, and Tadasu "Todd" Imahori) who describe an ongoing intercultural journey in which the author continues to learn and to live. "Culture Concepts" boxes provide more explicit links to the theory that underlies the lived experiences that are depicted. Each essay concludes with exercises and discussion questions, "Learning AmongUS," that encourage students to analyze and reflect on the essay. The new edition contains more direct and straightforward links with the authors' other intercultural text, "Intercultural Competence," allowing easier use for instructors who teach with both texts in their course.Praise for "AmongUS" "The fact that the text is a reader makes it stand out among the rest. Its first-person narrative style is so engaging. We slip into another's skin for a moment. We feel what they feel and then slip out again changed. The text truly has this kind of impact on many of my students. It offers the understanding of intercultural issues that are less accessible in the traditional textbook." --"Desiree C. Duff, Cornerstone University"

In the fully updated Seventh Edition of Intercultural Communication: A Contextual Approach, bestselling author James W. Neuliep provides a clear contextual model (visually depicted by a series of concentric circles) for examining communication within cultural, microcultural, environmental, sociorelational, and perceptual contexts. Students are first introduced to the broadest context—the cultural component of the model—and progress chapter by chapter through the model to the most specific dimensions of communication. Each chapter focuses on one context and explores the combination of factors within that context, including setting, situation, and circumstances. Highlighting values, ethnicity, physical geography, and attitudes, the book examines means of interaction, including body language, eye contact, and exchange of words, as well as the stages of relationships, cross-cultural management, intercultural conflict, and culture shock.
