|Culture Briefings give you current in-depth information found in no other single source on the customs, culture, etiquette, traditions and ways of life of people in cultures around the world. In today’s increasingly smaller world, understanding the ways of the world’s other peoples is an essential skill. And the Geotravel Research Center’s Culture Briefings will help you develop that expertise.|
Culture Briefings, available for immediate downloading in EPUB, Kindle (MOBI) and PDF formats for reading on your computer, electronic device or eReader, help you figure out the natives by penetrating below a society’s surface to reveal the customs and established ways of life in a particular country.
Culture Briefings show the enduring qualities of a people as well as their present preoccupations. They analyze a country’s culture and show why things are the way they are. They delve into a people’s character, values, beliefs and customs. You discover the people’s home, family and religious life as well as how they make a living, educate their children and spend their leisure time. You find out about the culture’s artistic endeavors and its political ways. And you learn of the problems the people face and how they handle them.
No other single publication gives you the information found in a Culture Briefing. Published by the Geotravel Research Center for a growing list of nations, these briefings are essential tools for study abroad students, leisure and business travelers, researchers, teachers and secondary and university students, providing current, in-depth information that helps to understand the customs and ways of people in the world's cultures.
Travelers get to know the people
If you're traveling abroad, a Culture Briefing lets you enrich your trip, gaining more knowledge, enjoyment and insight — and more financial success when traveling on business.
By giving you knowledge of the local people’s customary ways, a Culture Briefing helps you feel comfortable in what might otherwise be a strange environment. You gain the wisdom necessary to talk intelligently with people in a foreign culture, discussing the life they live, deciphering and interpreting how they think and behave. No longer will you run the risk of embarrassment when talking because you brought up a taboo subject, couldn’t comment on an aspect of local life or knew nothing of the local form of government. And if you're a business traveler, you'll get tips on conducting business.
