In today’s globalized world of international contact and multicultural
interaction, effective intercultural communication is increasingly seen as
a pre-requisite for social harmony and organisational success. This
handbook takes a “problem-solving” approach to the various issues that
arise in real-life intercultural interaction. The editors have brought
together experts from a range of disciplines, including linguistics,
psychology and anthropology, to provide a multi-disciplinary perspective on
the field, whilst simultaneously anchoring it in Applied Linguistics.
