You, The World, and Everything Around You: United States Today. Art, Culture, People, Social, Political, and Legal Systems of Our World by Maximillien J. De Lafayette

How much do you know about the world that surrounds you-about the most common and basic knowledge needed to understand how others think, react, and communicate? How about foreigners-their ways of life, taboos, traditions, arts, cultures? How to socialize with them?

This unique book will act as your companion abroad, teaching you all you need to know about the customs of other nations, and supply you with all the American contacts you may need if you are stranded. Includes instructions on how to behave in the most elegant and cosmopolitan resort or restaurant. Never again will you be in doubt as to greeting someone in Kazakhstan or tipping a waiter in Rome. You will never be at a loss addressing a dignitary in Japan. You will never lose a business transaction abroad or with visiting business people because you did not choose the right words.

At home, it is the perfect bedside companion you will return to again and again. It will amuse you with outrageous facts from all over the world-and from your backyard. Chock-full of useful and intriguing information, lists, tables, and full-length articles, it even contains in-depth reviews of over 200 artists and entertainers! Page after page, you will not be able to put this book down!
