Living in Different Cultures by Tamar Frankel is a memoir-like collection of keen observations of global culture. Vignettes by the Israeli-born distinguished legal scholar, now 93, guide those from different cultures on how to respect each other and live in harmony.

Frankel writes from nine decades of clear-eyed observing. Born in pre-Israel Palestine on July 4, 1925, she served in the Hagenah underground defense force, graduated from law school, served in the Israeli Air Force and helped the new nation of Israel draft its first set of civil laws before moving to the United States to practice law. Becoming in 1968 the first woman on the Boston University Law School faculty, she has taught there for 50 years - with time out to help devise the internet's legal structure and officially advise the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
