Bridging differences : effective intergroup communication by William B Gudykunst( Book )

57 editions published between 1991 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 2,571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bridging Differences is based on the assumption that the processes operating when we communicate with people from other groups are the same processes operating when we communicate with people from our own groups.

Bridging Japanese/North American differences by William B Gudykunst( )

15 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 1,693 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"More than language skills are needed for North Americans to effectively communicate with the Japanese. Comprehensive in its approach, Bridging Japanese/North American Differences applies Gudykunst's world-renowned intercultural communication method to the specifics of Japanese/North American communication. Gudykunst and Nishida first provide an overview of the various fundamental intercultural communication theories and then explain the similarities and differences between communication patterns in Japan and the United States. Next, they demonstrate how understanding the similarities and differences can help Japanese and North Americans communicate more effectively. By examining such areas as attitudes and stereotypes, the authors suggest ways to heighten understanding of Japanese behavior. They conclude by examining the factors that influence motivation, knowledge, and skills to increase communication effectiveness. Book jacket."--Jacket

Culture and interpersonal communication by William B Gudykunst( Book )

15 editions published between 1988 and 2010 in English and held by 726 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors examine the theoretical influence of culture on interpersonal communication. They provide a framework for guiding future, and for interpreting past, research in the field. Because cross-cultural comparisons of interpersonal communication must be theoretically based, culture must be treated as a variable in research. This concept is presented in the first two chapters and then applied to specific areas of research. Previous research is reinterpreted in the light of this concept, and explanations are provided on how culture has influenced specific areas such as situational factors, verbal and nonverbal communication styles, interpersonal and intergroup relationships

Communication in Personal Relationships Across Cultures examines the communication practices of non-Western cultures.

Chapters focus on communication practices in China, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Brazil, Iran, Africa, and totalitarian societies. Through both emic and etic approaches, this groundbreaking volume explores how members of a culture understand their own communication, and compares the similarities and differences of specific aspects of communication across cultures. --From publisher's description

Theories in intercultural communication by Young Yun, Ed Kim( Book )

17 editions published between 1988 and 1996 in English and held by 468 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Theories in Intercultural Communication, Volume 12 of the International and Intercultural Communication Annual, provides the most current overview and assessment of theorizing activity in intercultural communication. Advancements stimulated by empirical research resulting from the 1983 title in the same series, Intercultural Communication Theory, are reflected in this volume. In addition to revised chapters on such topics as constructivist theory, coordinated management theory, convergence theory, and adaptation in intercultural relationships, a number of new perspectives have been developed, including discussions on intercultural tranformation and network theory. Contributors from UK and Australia serve to broaden the scope. Just as the earlier volume helped to define the field, Theories in Intercultural Communication is an important contribution pointing to areas for further research, the need for continued refinements of existing approaches, and increased efforts at integration.--Product description at

Intergroup communication( Book )

3 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The social scientific study of communication has hitherto largely focused on communication between individuals. This book concentrates on the important and interesting topic of how membership of a group -racial, ethnic, social or sexual, for example - affects communication with members of another group. It integrates research and theory on intergroup behaviour with research and theory on communication, drawing on the findings of both European and North American scholars, which have in the past developed separately. The chapters are arranged to begin with the most general treatments and to end with the most specific, with an introductory chapter outlining the field, and a final chapter integrating the contents of the book. In addition to presenting an original contribution, each chapter presents a concise and up-to-date survey of research and theory."--Back cover
