Communication: A Critical/Cultural Introduction, Second Edition introduces communication, from intimate and interpersonal to the public and mediated, as cultural. Using contemporary critical theory, authors John T. Warren and Deanna L. Fassett focus on communication as advocacy—inherently influenced by culture, history and power. By situating communication concepts and theories within contemporary and engaging cultural scenes, the book is much more than a survey of ideas—it demonstrates the power of communication in our everyday lives.

The third edition of Communication: A Critical/Cultural Introduction provides a comprehensive, yet focused, overview of communication theory, interpersonal communication, and public communication and culture through the lens of contemporary critical theory. The text shows how we produce our world through communication, challenging us to explore power, ideology, and diversity through daily interactions, both public and private. The book begins with explanations of how communication relates to culture and power, how to distinguish between representative and constitutive communication, and how to build a message for an audience with an emphasis on social advocacy. Later chapters explore the responsibilities of speakers and listeners, alliance-building, the application of communication theory in the study of identity and perception, the relationship between language and culture, nonverbal communication, and more. The text closes with a discussion of communication as a means of social action, encouraging readers to use communication as a foundation for the advancement of issues that matter most to them.

Japan is heterogeneous and culturally diverse, both historically through ancient waves of immigration and in recent years due to its foreign relations and internationalization. However, Japan has socially, culturally, politically, and intellectually constructed a distinct and homogeneous identity. More recently, this identity construction has been rightfully questioned and challenged by Japan’s culturally diverse groups. This book explores the discursive systems of cultural identities that regenerate the illusion of Japan as a homogeneous nation. Contributors from a variety of disciplines and methodological approaches investigate the ways in which Japan’s homogenizing discourses are challenged and modified by counter-homogeneous message systems. They examine the discursive push-and-pull between homogenizing and heterogenizing vectors, found in domestic and transnational contexts and mobilized by various identity politics, such as gender, sexuality, ethnicity, foreign status, nationality, multiculturalism, and internationalization. After offering a careful and critical analysis, the book calls for a complicating of Japan’s homogenizing discourses in nuanced and contextual ways, with an explicit goal of working towards a culturally diverse Japan. Taking a critical intercultural communication perspective, this book will be of interest to students and scholars of Japanese Studies, Japanese Culture and Japanese Society.
