In this InterAct, Benjamin Broome examines the communication style and cultural patterns in contemporary Greece, known to its residents as Ellada. He deciphers the complexity of Greek culture, providing the reader with an accurate guide for navigating the unknown terrain of its social landscape.

Enriched with numerous examples from the author's travels and sojourns in the country, Exploring the Greek Mosaic is highly readable, yet it presents as in-depth treatment of many key subjects, including the Greek view of history; the importance of village, family and religion; the role of conversation and conflict in interpersonal relations; and the characteristics of the work environment.

Particular attention is given to similarities and differences in perception between Greeks and Americans, and sound advice is presented to those attempting to enter the Greek social world. Managers, diplomats, students and serious travelers will find this insightful examination of Greek culture an especially useful guide to interaction with Greeks, and those teaching intercultural relations will appreciate its refreshing approach to cultural analysis.

Book Description Intercultural Press. Paperback. Condition: New. 181 pages. Dimensions: 8.3in. x 5.5in. x 0.6in.Exploring the Greek Mosaic: A Guide to Intercultural Communication in Greece is a comprehensive exploration of the many facets of Greek life and culture including work, social life, history and society at large. Benjamin Broome deciphers the complexity of Greek culture, drawing on years of living and teaching in Greece to paint a vivid portrait of the Greeks and their cultural characteristics. His prose is enriched with numerous first-hand examples that personalize Greek culture. Exploring the Greek Mosaic seeks to help create positive intercultural relationships with Greek people. A country steeped in history and myth, Greece remains a largely homogenous society. While modernized, the country still revolves around certain key cornerstones, such as the village community, family life and the Greek Orthodox Church. Further, Broome explores Greek values, attitudes toward work, communication styles and mindsets and Greek perceptions of Americans. Included is a glossary of Greek words and phrases used throughout the text, as well as a thorough list of resources for further reading. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Seller Inventory # 9781877864391
