Our goal in this book is to give you the knowledge, motivation, and skills to accomplish that objective. ... The material we include in this book is guided as well by our strong belief that a textbook on intercultural communication needs to provide a healthy blend of the practical and the theoretical, of the concrete and the abstract."
