9780205173983: Across Cultures: A Reader for Writers

Overview Designed to offer an appealing anthology where there is an increased general interest in connections between and among cultures, Across Cultures, Fifth Edition strives to promote understanding of diverse cultures. The book provides an extensive sampling of and advocates acceptance of a diversity of voices, while suggesting ways to probe the correspondences, interrelationships, and mutual benefits of that diversity. The selections cover an even greater variety of cultural facets than the table of contents indicates. For example, the readings in "Work," the subject of Chapter 4, lead students to consider related subjects such as affirmative action, immigration, cultural displacement, family narratives, and definitions of success. Throughout the text, readers are encouraged to draw connections between and among readings through "Correspondence" questions that accompany each selection, thus developing their critical thinking skills. For those interested in developing their critical thinking, reading and writing skills, while learning about cultural diversity.
