Statement on Managerial Communication: Strategies and Applications, 6th edition
SAGE Publishing has immediately ceased the publication and sale of Managerial Communication: Strategies and Applications, 6th edition, by Dr. Geraldine Hynes as one of the examples listed does not measure up to our high standards of scholarly knowledge and academic discourse.
While the passage in question originally appeared in a previous edition of the text disseminated by a different publisher, they regrettably were carried over to the 6th edition which was published by SAGE. The passage in question is inaccurate and fails to capture the rich nuances of the culture and ideology of the Hmong people. Therefore, the book has been withdrawn immediately, and a full review of the entire text is underway. We take responsibility for publishing the acquired text, and apologize for any distress and offense the simplistic and inaccurate passage caused.
SAGE is committed to celebrating and supporting all communities and cultures across the globe and we appreciate those who have raised this concern.
