This volume provides an up to date overview and assessment of intercultural communication theories. 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, Theorizing Intercultural Communication is an important contribution pointing to areas of further research, the need for continued refinements of existing approaches, and increased efforts at integration.
