The Art of Crossing Cultures (Paperback)

£14.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Adjusting to a new culture and getting along with the local people can be a challenge for everyone who lives and works abroad. Whether in business, diplomacy, education, or as a long-term visitor, anyone can be blind-sided by a lack of international knowledge and experience and be caught at a disadvantage.



In this completely revised and expanded third edition, Craig Storti outlines the personal challenges of adjusting to the change - anticipating differences, managing the temptation to withdraw, and gradually adjusting expectations of behaviour to fit reality - and shows what it takes to encounter a new culture head-on and succeed.



Now an established bestseller, The Art of Crossing Cultures is a one-of-a-kind guidebook to bridging the cultural divide, incorporating an easy-to-understand model of cultural adjustment, and tips on how to master the process and develop adaptive strategies. This timely new edition focuses on how to deal with country and culture shock and includes many examples of cross-cultural misunderstandings. As well as revisions throughout, it includes a brand new chapter on crossing cultures at home.
