The Fourth Edition of Fred Jandts text An Introduction to Intercultural Communication: Identities in a Global Community challenges students to develop cultural competency by developing an understanding of how we perceive and react to cultural rules not only those of others, but also our own.
Going beyond an American assessment of the field, this textbook assumes that no culture is privileged over another, be that culture from across the globe or a subculture or subgroup around the corner. Issues of identity, nationality, assimilation, and inter-group relations promote appreciation of diversity among people. An Introduction to Intercultural Communication is intended for introductory courses in Intercultural Communication and related topics. A new accompanying reader, Intercultural Communication: A Global Reader, is also available and can be used alone or in conjunction with An Introduction to Intercultural Communication.
