In this volume, Ting-Toomey and Oetzel accomplish two objectives: to explain the culture-based situational conflict model, including the relationship among conflict, ethnicity, and culture; and, second, integrate theory and practice in the discussion of interpersonal conflict in culture, ethnic, and gender contexts. While the book is theoretically directed, it is also a down-to-earth practical book that contains ample examples, conflict dialogues, and critical incidents. Managing Intercultural Conflict Effectively helps to illustrate the complexity of intercultural conflict interactions and readers will gain a broad yet integrative perspective in assessing intercultural conflict situations. The book is a multidisciplinary text that draws from the research work of a variety of disciplines such as cross-cultural psychology, social psychology, sociology, marital and family studies, international management, and communication.

Industry Reviews

"The authors of this book bring intercultural research and theory together and develop a practical framework for understanding intercultural conflict, leading to some very specific suggestions for how we can deal with it more effectively. Whereas most literature in this area focuses on a specific context, e.g. within the family, within business organizations, or within small groups, this book spans all these contexts. This book is written for people who are involved in intimate relationships, group-work, and manager- employee relationships -in other words, everyone can benefit." -- Dr. Allan E. Barsky * Interaction *
