Completely revised and updated, the new edition of the Handbook of Intercultural Training reviews and summarizes the state of the art in the field of intercultural training. Organized into three sections, the book first deals with the theoretical and methodological issues inherent in understanding intercultural relations and training. The second part considers the contexts in which training takes place as well as some specific techniques. In the final section, issues specific to particular parts of the world are dealt with. These include Eastern Europe, China, Central and South America and Israel, which have all faced turbulent times in the last decade.

“The Handbook of Intercultural Training, Third Edition provides a thorough grounding in the history, concepts and methods underlying intercultural training. The many analyses of tools, methods and approaches for specific contexts offer guidance in designing and conducting effective training interventions. The collected theoretical and practical information presented in this book is critical for professional interculturalists.”(Lee Gardenswartz, Ph.D. and Anita Rowe, Ph.D )
“This book is just in time and just for me. It's as if someone assembled all the interculturalists I admire and respect and bribed them to share their latest and best thoughts in a well-crafted chapter. You'll probably feel the same way.”
