Reviews

Ingrid Piller's book will be seen as a landmark in a 'second wave' of studies on intercultural communication. Solidly grounded in discourse analysis and sociolinguistics, clearly and accessibly written and compellingly argued, it revives a field not always well served by its scholars, and we are now at last in a position to see intercultural communication for what it is: a historically situated and politically sensitive complex of communication modes, analysis of which requires attention to the smallest details as well as to the biggest things in the world - globalization processes. -- Jan Blommaert, Tilburg University Ingrid Piller's book will be seen as a landmark in a 'second wave' of studies on intercultural communication.
