Intercultural Communication: The Indian Context (1st Edition, 2015)
"This book offers the best of all worlds for those interested in intercultural communication in the Indian context. The authors have included the state-of-the-art in terms of theorizing and research on intercultural communication with the application and culture-specific knowledge about India. It is the ideal blend of the global and local focus. This book will be of great interest to students, scholars, practitioners, business people, and politicians interested in the unique intercultural context of India." --John Oetzel, Professor, The School of Management and Marketing, The University of Waikato, New Zealand "This Rao-Thombre volume on intercultural communication, steeped in the container of India's rich and diverse multicultural ethos, is a must-read for scholars and practitioners of intercultural communication and South Asian studies." -- Arvind Singhal, Professor of Communication and Director of the Social Justice Initiative, The University of Texas at El Paso
"Rao and Thombre present a compelling argument for the unique cultural fusion that typifies India. Given the complex mosaic of India based on ethnicity, caste, religion, and language, the authors express surprise and dismay that more attention to the process of intercultural communication has not occurred in Indian education. This book is intended to open a dialogue between all the cultural stakeholders in India as well as for outsiders who want to better understand the Indian context. The authors present an engaging in-depth cultural portrait for observers both inside and out of India."
-- Mary Bresnahan, Professor of Communication, Michigan State University
