A Sense of Culture: Cultural Anthropology in a Cross Cultural Perspective combines the methodology of cultural anthropology with case-studies on cross-cultural communication. It explains how anthropological concepts can be applied in everyday situations by people working, living or studying within a culture different from their own. Although this book is of interest to anyone who is working within environments across cultures, one of the extra special features of this publication is that it can be used as a textbook for students in Cultural Anthropology, Economy, Communication Studies, Cross-Cultural Communication and Business Administration and International Trade.
