About this title


This book is a practical map that will help you understand the people and demystify the culture of the Arab world - the beliefs, values and social structures that determine how business is conducted and how things are done.

This is not a sterile list of dos and don'ts. This book will help you develop a deeper knowledge and understanding of the motivators of behaviour. It will also widen your perspective and arm you with the knowledge that will enable you to float with ease and confidence from one situation to the other.


'The book's strength is that it has been written by an Arab practitioner, with deep knowledge of the customs and traditions of the Arab world. It is comprehensive in the areas it covers, and effectively uses testimonies from people around the world to make its points. It is essential reading for anyone wanting to live, work or study in this region.' Dr Marwan Muasher, director, Middle East Programme, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace 'This guide is a must-read for anyone conducting business in the Middle East region. It expertly provides insight on Arab culture and business practices and even helps those with experience navigate what can otherwise be rocky waters. Nejem shares her own and others' stories in an enjoyable and accessible manner.' Per-Ola Karlsson, partner, Strategy&, part of the PwC network 'A lively, insightful and expert guide for anyone spending time in an Arab country. A great shortcut to avoid the frustrations and enjoy the fascinations of this compelling region.' John Casson, British ambassador in Cairo and former foreign affairs private secretary to the prime minister 'The book is chock full of practical advice on the specificities of living and working in the Arab world yet it resonates broadly - far beyond the region. On the one hand, the book carefully guides the reader on important practices and traditions, even zooming in on variations in the distinct sub-regions of the Arab world. On the other hand, it provides valuable wisdom about getting along in a foreign culture that, with some modifications, could serve as a general guide for encountering new people and places throughout the world.' Melani Cammett, professor, Department of Government, Harvard University
