1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By L. Cibulsky on January 18, 2009
Format: Paperback
I read this in a bookclub and we all enjoyed it and learned something from the book. Excellent book on cultural change - how it has been implemented in the past, what has worked and what hasn't and unintended consequences of change efforts. Also a focus on personal identity as part of a cultural group and the value of tradition in one's own identity. If you are responsible for improving a social issue look to the people who live in the culture(s) to determine the solution and the way to implement. Externally imposed solutions never work (true in all forms of culture - community, work and family life).

I've never been much of an in-person people person and tend to get my ideas about human nature and interactions from books. This one really transported me to the cultures being described.
