Summary
"More than language skills are needed for North Americans to effectively communicate with the Japanese. Comprehensive in its approach, Bridging Japanese/North American Differences applies Gudykunst's world-renowned intercultural communication method to the specifics of Japanese/North American communication. Gudykunst and Nishida first provide an overview of the various fundamental intercultural communication theories and then explain the similarities and differences between communication patterns in Japan and the United States. Next, they demonstrate how understanding the similarities and differences can help Japanese and North Americans communicate more effectively. By examining such areas as attitudes and stereotypes, the authors suggest ways to heighten understanding of Japanese behavior. They conclude by examining the factors that influence motivation, knowledge, and skills to increase communication effectiveness. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET
