The authors introduced a textbook that is useful for introductory classes in intercultural communication. Liu et al. (all from the University of Queensland, Australia) (2011) say their main impetus for writing this book was to situate "intercultural communication in a broader context that will help to bridge the gap left by existing textbooks and will have a wider application beyond the US context" (p. 6). Sadly, the range of the book is limited, offering insights into and explanations about culture in North America, Europe, Asia and Oceanic countries but ignoring Africa and South America.
