On the basis of such a revised declaration, victims of political and religious fundamentalisms can be protected; this protection should prevail over national sovereignty'', followed by the acknowledgement of historical record ''The nineteenth century and the first half of the twentieth century was the age of Europe; Europeans and their offspring overseas were the “lords of humankind,” who colonized most of the outside world while wealth owed from outside to inside'' but cannot seem to see the continuation of the practice so resort to vulgar opinion ''freedom from want became recognized as a fundamental human right, and around 1950 programs of development aid were gradually started, financed by the rich countries and with the poor ones as receivers. Ever wonder why the topics of religion and politics form such explosive dinner table conversation pieces?

It is very interesting and proposes many views on cultural norms, which somehow feel intuitively correct.

The topic is absolutely fascinating and one not covered much elsewhere so I really enjoyed the 500 pages or so of the book, but it just took me a long time to get through it because of the organization of the book and the more academic style of writing. This financed (still does) and maintains of the lifestyles of ‘home’ citizens and increases investitures of their pension funds. A number of countries did cross the line from poor to rich, especially in East Asia, but this progress was due to their populations’ own values and efforts, not to the amount of aid money received'' ignores where the manufacturing capabilities are located, wealth influx also of China from the fact of their nationalized ‘state-private’ resources not immediately stolen by tax havens and the points already made. Regurgitated Weberian sociology but as a text of its descriptors, with this one more ‘facts-adapted-to-suit-theory’, albeit one of an Anglo/Protestant (Calvinist/Lutheran) variety, very imperialist/colonialist mindset (but dislikes ‘Scandinavian culture’), since after all the ‘transition to a market economy’ after formal independence of the ‘developing world’ was a necessity if powerful money rather than outright seizure of assets and plunder were sanctioned rules of habit. Even when local wars do not destroy the products of peaceful development, forces in society make development difficult to attain.

Fully updated and rewritten for the twenty-first century, this edition: reveals the unexamined rules by which people in different cultures think, feel, and act in business, family, schools, and political organizations; explores how national cultures differ in the key areas of inequality, collectivism versus individualism, assertiveness versus modesty, tolerance for ambiguity, and deferment of gratification; explains how organizational cultures differ from national cultures, and how they can sometimes be managed; explains culture shock, ethnocentrism, stereotyping, differences in language and humor, and other aspects of intercultural dynamics; provides powerful insights for business people, civil servants, physicians, mental health professionals, law enforcement professionals, and others. Now, as an HR strategy consultant, Hofstede remains my trusted, go to source for making sense of the various dimensions of culture on multinational change enablement initiatives. The scope of these disciplines varies from the individual to the small group to the society to international affairs. The bottom line is that cultural values were set deep in the past, but that they are continually evolving in response to events and experiences. It ends with ‘‘in recent millennia, evolution has pressed toward enlargement of the moral circle, but we are not done yet.MASCULINITY/FEMININITY: A society is masculine when emotional gender roles are clearly distinct; men are supposed to be assertive, tough, and focused on material success, whereas women are supposed to be modest, tender, and concerned with the quality of life. I am currently working on my doctorate in global leadership, and I was hoping that this text would be a great resource for my program. nation-building, it bears remembering that even something as Perfect and Flawless as American democracy can be difficult, if not downright impossible, to export to a nation or region that has a completely different set of values.

I noticed that the author especially focuses on differences in cultures in Europe and between Europe/US, yet rarely had good insight in Asian, Latin American, or African cultures.Although the authors do make a serious attempt to look at things from other perspectives, they simply cannot divorce themselves from their own cultural preferances. It’s written in a simple language and broken down into very understandable bits so even someone without much previous knowledge (like me) can have a pleasant read.

It is also useful to break down one's own nation (for example, some Americans lean toward the British way of thinking while others are more German-like). In times of globalization, understanding and accepting cultural diversity and appreciating other people's views about life and how human beings should relate to one another is increasingly important.long term orientation and the power distance factors ring true about how companies are led and run, and the differences brought about by whether the terrain and climate lent itself to settled agriculture or hunting/gathering - and how firmly entrenched the mindsets continue to be despite the globalization of food supplies - was also thought provoking. I have a better perspective of countries through these five lenses and they'll definitely come in handy if I ever decide to work overseas. Thus both are more assertive, which means we tend to express our differences than hiding them, and we intend to achieve what we think is right.
