Case method teaching has long been recognized for its educational value. In classes, workshops, and seminars where case studies are used effectively, discussion participants gain knowledge and become more proficient in analyzing information. Case learning also increases tolerance for ambiguity and fosters deeper understanding of complicated issues. Beyond basic-level memorization of concepts and definitions, case learning encourages participants to engage in perspective-taking while analyzing and evaluating the communication behaviors of characters. Case learning promotes exploration of complex problems in ways that are creative, interactive, and engaging for both case learners and case facilitators. This book is a compilation of original case studies on topics spanning intercultural communication, organizational communication, and conflict resolution. Core concepts in conflict studies, such as shared interests, conflict styles, and power currencies, are narratively presented in dynamic interplay, and discussion participants are compelled to think critically about their implications. Moreover, abstract concepts and policies pertinent to intercultural relations, like intercultural communication competence and affirmative action policies, are presented in the form of concrete characters in situated realities, encouraging case learners to consider the particulars (people), as well as the principles (ethics and laws). For the case learner, the highest level of thinking is required: core concepts must be learned, synthesized, applied, and critically examined in discussing the case.

"The essays in this volume pay tribute to the achievements of RenÚe C. Fox in the fields of medicine and sociology. Many of the contributors are Fox's colleagues and former students from medicine, sociology, nursing, and bioethics. The title--Society and Medicine--reflects the leitmotif in Fox's work: her studies of and teaching about the nature of medicine and medical research; the training and work of their practitioners; the interrelationships between medicine and the societies and cultures of which it is a part; and, above all, the moral and spiritual dimensions of the healing arts."
