This book was written to introduce students to disciplines that study culture's influence on human behavior; these disciplines include cross-cultural psychology, intercultural communication and international organizational behavior. Because virtually everyone interacts with individuals from different cultures, this book helps them to understand these interactions in their own lives. Written in a lively, engaging style with many examples to illustrate complex concepts, this text covers a range of topics that are of inherent interest to readers, such as schooling, work, gender, socialization of children, and health. This text is used in a variety of departments including psychology, sociology, communications, and business. This book can also be used in a course that satisfies a college wide 'diversity' requirement.
