Review Constructive intercultural management: Integrating cultural differences successfully (a review)

This is a very well organised, tightly focused and clearly presented book which will be of value to intercultural trainers, teachers of languages for special purposes and international managers dealing with cultural differences. It divides into three parts – Understanding Constructive Intercultural Management, Experiencing Constructive Intercultural Management and Designing Constructive Intercultural Management – and contains thirteen chapters. Each chapter is clearly laid out with a chapter summary of Learning Objectives at the beginning and a summary at the end, supported by Discussion Questions for use in groups or for individual study and reflection. The approach is broadly theoretical, but a highlight of the book is the examples of the challenges of intercultural management and best practice, presented in boxes throughout the text, and the frequent use of charts and diagrammes for further clarification.
