Cross-cultural management in work organisations

Ray French

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This title offers up-to-date and comprehensive coverage of cross-cultural social relations in the work setting, and provides an evaluation of existing and emerging frameworks for understanding cross-cultural differences. The book's international scope will be strengthened through the use of new case studies and examples taken from all regions of the world. The changes for the 2nd edition include: greater stress on emerging issues and frameworks underlying the study of culture - for example the role of language, diversity management and the concept of identity; greater emphasis on cross-cultural negotiation and intercultural team-building; more focus on the 'Stress and Coping Approach'; and, more corporate examples to stress the topicality of the subject area. The new learning features include: 'applying theory to practice' boxes and review questions; improved web site with annotated web links and self- assessment exercises for students; and, PowerPoint slides, class exercises and additional case studies for lecturers.
