Product Description

From Library Journal

American social customs are not universal, and there is a need for this kind of book. Among Chinese greet the oldest person first; in India do not hug someone of the opposite sex; in Malaysia do not show the soles of your feet. And it is best almost everywhere to avoid discussing local politics. In a refreshing display of honesty, the authors admit to not having set foot in half of the countries covered. Despite one or two incorrect statements, the book is sound and useful. And by the way, when in New Zealand don't praise Australians. Harold M. Otness, Southern Oregon State College Library, Ashland
