In the field of global business, managers must understand and promote the pride of all cultures in both their home and host countries. "Organizational Behavior: Global Multicultural Perspectives," reflects the authors' passion for, and deep commitment to, a multicultural, multi-faceted understanding of human behavior and its impact on the workplace. In today's increasingly global interdependent companies and economies it is necessary for professionals to fully comprehend the synergistic roles played by regional, governmental, and religious forces. This comprehensive volume is a crucial resource for every manager who belongs to social organizations, as well as students of both domestic and international business, political science, public administration, and medical and health organizations, including hospitals and research centers.
