Book Description

In our age of globalization and mass migration (where, for example, it is estimated that over twelve per cent of its current population was born outside the USA), the importance of successful communication between people of different linguistic and cultural backgrounds has never been greater. As traditional social and geographic boundaries have given way to increasingly complex representations of identity, new – and urgent – questions for psychologists, social scientists, and policymakers arise.

As research in and around intercultural communication burgeons as never before, this new four-volume collection from Routledge’s acclaimed Critical Concepts in Psychology series meets the need for an authoritative reference work to make sense of a rapidly growing and ever more complex corpus of literature. Edited by a leading social psychologist, the collection is organized into four principal themes: intercultural differences; intercultural conflict; intercultural ideology; and intercultural integration. Intercultural Communication provides a one-stop ‘mini library’ of foundational and canonical work. The collection also includes cutting-edge analyses and discussions of theory and research, as well as major works addressing social intervention and policy implications.
