This book helps readers better understand and interact with people from other cultures, encouraging them to react and draw upon their experiences. The concept of culture is discussed fully, and both its unifying and divisive elements are examined. Exercises found both throughout the text and at the end of each chapter are aimed at helping readers discover their own biases.

“Although a lot remains to be achieved in the quality of human interactions, communication among nations, races, genders, cultures, and religious groups has increased. While the needed respect, harmony, and understanding are still lacking, in many parts of the world, people can look at each other without rushing to commit acts of genocide that prevailed not too long ago...When we recognize the humanity of those individuals and groups standing both near and far, offer them the same treatment that we want for ourselves, the attainment of peace will not be an impossible task...Simply put, this is a book for all humanity.”
—from the Preface
