Praise for the 1st edition:
'This book is a useful reminder that culture is constructed, perpetuated and changed through small acts of communication in everyday life. It offers a clear, practical methodology for escaping the essentialization of people, behaviors and events … Most enjoyable are the illustrative anecdotes of intercultural (mis)communication presented for analysis and interpretation.' – Claire Kramsch, University of California, Berkeley,USA
