Culture and Interpersonal Communication



© 1988 | 280 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Recipient of the 1988 Outstanding Book Award from the International and Intercultural Division of the Speech Communication Association "The integration is impressive, and the book is a 'must' for those interested in this and related topics. . . . I think this book is likely to become 'the bible' of graduate students preparing for qualifying examinations for their doctorate in interpersonal communication, particularly if cultural variables are included in such preparation. Professionals in this area will, of course, want to have it. It is recommended to all readers of this journal." --Harry Triandis, International Journal of Intercultural Relations "This book provides a welcome addition to the literature on human interaction. . . . The coverage of most areas is impressive. The authors have amassed a considerable volume of material and have managed to compress a very detailed discussion into a comparatively small space. The material is logically organized and succinctly presented throughout . . . a valuable reference source. . . . A thoroughly researched and tightly written book which contributes significantly to the corpus scholarship in both interpersonal and intercultural communication. It is highly recommended as a reference source for anyone interested in these increasingly imporatnt areas of research." --Canadian Journal of Communication "The authors have integrated an impressive array of literature. . . . This book is timely and will help give direction to culture and communnication research over the next decade. . . . Clearly structured and the material is well organized. . . . The writing is easy to read and the material generally well integrated." --Contemporary Sociology "Offers a very useful grounding and integration of work in this area so far." --Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology
