'This is an excellent introduction and a very important contribution to the field. I have not found in other recent publications such extensive and wide- ranging examples of relevant research used to support the arguments put forward - International Journal of Applied Linguistics 'One important feature of the book is the inclusion of case studies from around the world. The book consists of vivid and interesting cases of modernity that span the globe, suggesting that Piller's intercultural communication research derived from a worldwide cultural basis.
