Overview

Adjusting to a new culture and getting along with the local people can be huge challenges for someone who lives and works abroad. Whether in business, diplomacy, education or leisure, anyone can be blindsided by a lack of international knowledge and experience, thus caught at a disadvantage. In this second edition of his best-selling The Art of Crossing Cultures, Craig Storti gives voice to the cross-cultural experience and shows what it takes to encounter a new culture and succeed.This timely new edition focuses special attention on how to deal with country and culture shock and identifies two types of intercultural incidents, giving a more holistic picture of cross-cultural misunderstandings. Learning how to anticipate differences and master positive alternative reactions is at the heart of The Art of Crossing Cultures, as well as the cross-cultural adaptation experience.The interesting thing about The Art of Crossing Cultures is that it will be as enlightening to the university student in a formal intercultural communication course as it will be to the practical-minded businessperson bound for a first overseas assignment and as it will be for the seasoned intercultural specialist who is forever looking for theoretical material to explain the process we have all experienced but have such difficulty putting into words. -Robert Kohls, San Francisco ContentsPreface to the Second EditionForeward to the First EditionAcknowledgmentsIntroduction1 Country Shock2 Culture Shock3 The Fallout4 The Problem Explained5 The Problem Solved6 Language Lessons7 The PayoffAppendix: Eloquent WitnessA Selected Reading ListBibliographyIndex
