This comprehensive book examines both the principal methods used in cross-cultural training and a selection of techniques and instructional devices. Six methods are examined in twenty articles : roleplays, contrast-culture training, simulation games, critical incidents, the culture assimilator and case studies. In each, a lead article traces the development and use of the particular method; several articles then offer specific applications. Intercultural Sourcebook provides both a framework for conceptualizing the training methods covered and guidelines for applying them in one’s own work. Each article is written by an experienced trainer; in fact, the author list comprises a “who’s who” in the field. Thorough, practical and enlightening, this book will define the field for years to come.
