Editorial Reviews

Review

"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."

“the bible of multiculturalism” - New York Times News Service

"All in all, this is one of the most complete books about management in the modern global world. The cross-cultural dimension of the book makes it a must-read for any young or experienced manager working internationally out of corporate headquarters or working full time overseas."
-- Christopher Howard-Williams, International consultant and executive education provider

Format: Paperback
Managing Cultural Differences provides great depth of insight on a broad range of issues related to the impact of culture on global management. In addition, the authors drill down on regional cultural specifics to look at the behaviors behind cultural tendencies within the context of history, politics, economics, law, society, environmental factors, etc. It's an exceptionally well-sourced publication covering the tried and true academic/management resources as well as contemporary cultural anthropologists working on cross-cultural effectiveness. However, I found the personal experiences of Dr. Moran to be most valuable and entertaining. With over 65 nationalities in our organization, I've turned to MCD countless times to help support increased collaboration with the challenges we face. It's the one book I turn to again and again as I work to improve and leverage my own personal level of intercultural effectiveness. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
In an ever shrinking world in which doing business internationally has become commonplace, Moran's book, "Managing Cultural Differences", is a welcomed resource. It is a must for those who wish to understand the international waters in which they are swimming, and who wish to avoid the pitfalls of an inadvertent faux pas in a foreign land. Don't miss it. David N. Ramras, Attorney, Phoenix, Arizona.
