Review quote

'Holliday, Kullman and Hyde have put together a highly learner-friendly textbook that offers an extensive coverage of the central issues of intercultural communication. They have successfully provided a multi-disciplinary perspective on the subject, which would be relevant for students of different fields such as communication studies, linguistics and sociology.' Tan Ying Ying, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore "This book helps the reader to gain a greater understanding of intercultural communication, of their own culture and of themselves. It does so by presenting engaging case studies of problematic intercultural 'events', by providing enlightening explanations and by inviting the reader to connect these cases to their own thinking and their lives." Brian Tomlinson, Leeds Metropolitan University, UK
