Edited by Nazan Haydari and Prue Holmes, Case Studies in Intercultural Dialogue focuses on the important and under-investigated concept of intercultural dialogue. It draws on cases of intercultural communication in which there is a dialogue, conflict or misunderstanding, and presents approaches, theories, and analytical tools that can be used to productively understand and/or resolve the issues presented in each case study.

This edited collection covers a wide range of research topics drawn from peace building, arts and media, education, anthropology, new communication technologies organizational communication, and more....The format of Case Studies in Intercultural Dialogue encourages readers to engage in discussion from different perspectives through various methodological and theoretical approaches to problems, opportunities, and ethical issues of intercultural communication.

Too often, the scholars have left intercultural dialogue to the practitioners, as if it were none of their concern. Case Studies in Intercultural Dialogue makes a substantial contribution to the scholarly conversation. Much more remains to be done, of course, as might be expected with such a potentially large and significant topic, but this book provides a strong starting point."
