He has published numerous works which generally concern the role of culture in international settings in the teaching of English.
"Through extending his seminal notion of `small cultures' to a much grander `grammar of culture', this is much more than a textbook in intercultural communication. Lucidly written and illustrated by fine-grained personal vignettes, Holliday provides a refreshing synthesis of culture and the intercultural which will both engage interested readers, and illuminate experienced researchers." - Malcolm N. MacDonald, University of Warwick, UK
"Understanding Intercultural Communication is essentially a textbook aimed at helping students analyze cultural interactions from non-essentialist perspectives. The process is supported by ethnographic narratives within the text and by a variety of online access tools and activities." - George F. Simons, Founder of www.diversophy.com
