Language and Intercultural Communication in the New Era
Given the remarkable growth in the prevalence of intercultural communication among people from many cultural backgrounds, and across many contexts and channels, conceptual divides such as 'native/non-native' are now almost irrelevant. This has caused the power attached to English and native speaker-like English to lose much of its automatic domination. Such developments have provided new opportunities, as well as challenges, for the study of intercultural communication and its increasingly complex nature. This book showcases recent studies in the field in a multitude of contexts to enable a collective effort towards advancements in the area.

Table of contents
'Sharifian and Jamarani succeed in presenting a snapshot of current research, and in doing so, reflect the complexity surrounding the issue of intercultural communication, both its scholarly tradition and modern interpretations..While the volume is clearly of interest to academics and students of linguistics or language pedagogy, it is written with accessible clarity that would also allow non- experts in the field to draw a deeper understanding of the main issues.' - Gail AlHafidh, Higher Colleges of Technology
