From the Publisher:

Based on recent research, this edition expands its coverage of interethnic dating, ingroup biases, ethnic identities, prejudiced communication, face and facework, cultural and ethnic differences in conflict, and changing expectations for strangers' behaviors.
Theoretical material is well supported and clarified by examples, figures and tables.
A strong focus on theoretical issues is balanced by text that applies theory to the real task of communication.
Unique Chapter 15 Community through Diversity concludes the text. This chapter is regarded by students as a highly effective way to wrap up the course.
Principal theories of intercultural communication have been incorporated throughout the book. Examples included theories on identity negotiation and identity management in Chapter 4, theories of overt and covert prejudice in Chapter 5, theories such as conversational constraint theory and communication accommodation theory in chapter 8, and face-negotiation theory in chapter 11.
