Review quote

"I like [the proposal] very much. Bringing back some of the articles from previous editions will provide students with an historical perspective that is not found in the current edition, and will serve to bring some sense of scholarly continuity to the study of intercultural communication. The final "New Perspectives" chapter then points to the future of this field of study, again providing continuity."
