Experiencing Intercultural Communication, An Introduction, 6th Edition, provides students with a framework to begin building
their intercultural communication skills. Through understanding the complexities of intercultural interaction, students start the
process of learning about other cultures in their professional endeavors and personal relationships. The unique backgrounds
of coauthors Judith N. Martin, a social scientist, and Thomas K. Nakayama, a critical rhetorician bring a distinctive perspective
to this thought-provoking subject matter.

perceived, with personal anecdotes throughout the

å Straightforward discussion of the role history plays in
intercultural communication and how it affects the way
in which people communicate.
å New discussion on the differences between generations
and how they communicate, with the younger
