Editorial Reviews

Personnel Psychology
"An important, sophisticated and complex monograph. . . . Both the theoretical analysis and the empirical findings constitute major contributions to cross-cultural value analysis and the cross-cultural study of work motivations and organizational dynamics. This book is also a valuable resource for anyone interested in a historical or anthropological approach to cross-cultural comparisons."
PERSONNEL PSYCHOLOGY

This update of the 1980 edition expands the exploration of culture- dependent differences in values and social action from 40 to some 50 nations; and using the IBM Attitude Survey Questionnaire, provides cross-disciplinary analyses of the factors of power distance, uncertainty avoidance, individualism and collectivism, sex/gender, long- vs. short-term orientation, cultures in organizations, and intercultural encounters. Appendices include the questionnaire; countries' scores; correlation of those scores to data from other sources; case studies from an organizational cultures research project; and a brief essay on the author's values. Hofstede (emeritus, organizational anthropology and international management, Maastricht U.) has served as a consultant to such international organizations as the World Bank and the Commission of the European Union.
