"This book is an Herculean attempt to tackle an important and diverse field with a strong pedagogical eye. The authors have assembled a veritable cast of luminaries from wide-ranging fields and challenged them to shed light on what and how to teach the successful crossing of cultures. Each master teacher provides us with theory, practice, examples and self-criticism in a beguilingly modest and yet fascinating fashion. At the end, one cannot help but to emerge richer in understanding of the complexity of the task.--Jose de la Torre, Chapman Graduate School of Business, Florida International University."

Moreover it directly addresses business students and managers, who are becoming more and more involved in crossing cultures, at home as well as abroad.--Susan Schneider Professor of Human Resource Management HEC University of Geneva, And Visiting Professor of Organizational Behavior at INSEAD, France."
