“The Scollons have long been leaders in the field of intercultural communication. Now Yuling Pan brings her extensive research and consulting experience to join with them in providing a theoretically sound, methodologically rigorous, and eminently practical approach to business communication in an international environment. Their 'three-cultures' exchange model avoids the common pitfall of binary cultural comparison, and their case history approach demonstrates the effectiveness of using multiple perspectives to address the complexity of real workplace situations. This rich and insightful book will prove invaluable to individuals working in international contexts and the trainers who prepare them, and to anyone who wants a deeper understanding of intercultural communication.” Deborah Tannen, author of I Only Say This Because I Love You "[Professional communication in international settings] is scholarly and extremely informative, yet it is also enjoyable to read with its illuminating examples...This book is a must for business people or professionsal who strive to achieve a better understanding and more effective communication in cross-cultural interactions.“ Language in Society ”Rich with culture-specific communication examples, the book contributes to our understanding of intercultural communication."
