Paperback, 128 pages.
The world is getting smaller as more people are traveling, immigrating, fleeing war zones and working overseas. This movement is creating cross-cultural encounters at a mind-boggling rate. Modern media and the Internet contribute to the blurring of cultural borders, leading us to think there are few cultural differences. In relating to one another, however, the truth soon becomes apparent. Hostilities quickly flare as ethnic groups become polarized and cultural identities are defended.
