Cultures in Contrast is designed for students who are entering college or university life in the 21st century. It provides challenging readings and comprehension questions in every unit, accompanied by updated suggested films and additional readings. In each unit, students move from a general exploration of their beliefs to an analysis of a case study, a discussion of readings, and finally a specific choice of a coping strategy for a hypothetical dilemma. The case studies and readings, while providing various perspectives on life in the United States, are also meant to

strengthen students’ cultural self-awareness. The second edition features a new unit on binge drinking, which has been added to recognize one of the most serious problems on college campuses today.

Today, more than ever, students on college campuses are expected to have a sensitivity to and respect for diversity as well as a heightened awareness of individual rights and responsibilities. This text attempts to prepare students for this academic environment. Cultures in Contrast offers these students a means for analyzing and evaluating the complex social and moral issues that young adults throughout the world have to deal with.
