About the Book:

This volume deals with the theme of interethnic communication. It is the first anthology on interethnic relations that consists entirely of communication-focused studies.|Focusing on specific aspects of interethnic communication, these studies incorporate a wide range of varied perspectives and theories for analyses. The studies are generally arranged from the most intrapersonal (psychological) to the most interpersonal (social). The first four studies are analyses of message-decoding patterns. Specifically, they deal with ethnic patterns of cognitive and affective orientation in the context of interethnic communication. The next five studies focus on language and verbal and nonverbal behavior in interethnic interactions. The final two chapters examine the role of ethnicity in interpersonal relationship development across ethnic groups.
