Overview

A valuable introduction to the German way of life, with chapters on core values, attitudes, and a practical business briefing

Despite superficial appearances, Germany is a country that operates very differently from the USA and Britain. German history is more than a thousand years old and the relatively new German nation-state encompasses an astonishing variety of cultural and regional differences. German society is in a state of flux as people respond to immigration and a tough economic climate, and traditional attitudes are softening as German business globalizes. Culture Smart! Germany aims to show you what treatment to expect, what pitfalls to avoid, and how to build rapport and credibility with this culturally rich and inventive people in the heart of Europe.
