Reviews

"Managing Cultural Differences should be a required text for all students (graduate and undergraduate) who are preparing for careers in international business, foreign service or developmental change, in either the public or private sectors.

Having spent a good part of my professional career working both abroad (Malawi, India, and Indonesia) and in the United States (Indian Reservations and in Appalachia,) this book is of great value to anyone working or living in a cross cultural environment, both at home or abroad.

A five star publication."
