As there are different races and people in the world, so there are different cultures - meaning that cultural diversity is inevitable. Through human contact and association cultures meet. In such meetings every individual and culture projects itself as worthy, and should be held in high esteem. In today's world it is not encouraging to be ethnocentric - always taking action or in actions that crystallize and project a feeling of one's own culture or racial superiority. Such attitude obstructs meaningful interaction, human relations, tolerance and co-operation. Conversely, the skill and ability to tolerate and communicate effectively with people from diverse cultures is a social activity which begins from thought to behaviour, in both spoken and non-spoken versions. The book contains 19 essays, structured into five parts.

Successfully communicating with people from another culture requires learning more than just their language. While fumbling a word or phrase may cause embarrassment, breaking the unspoken cultural rules that govern personal interactions can spell disaster for businesspeople, travelers, and indeed anyone who communicates across cultural boundaries. To help you avoid such damaging gaffes, Tracy Novinger has compiled this authoritative, practical guide for deciphering and following "the rules" that govern cultures, demonstrating how these rules apply to the communication issues that exist between the United States and Mexico. Novinger begins by explaining how a major proportion of communication within a culture occurs nonverbally through behavior and manners, shared attitudes, common expectations, and so on. Then, using real-life examples and anecdotes, she pinpoints the commonly occurring obstacles to communication that can arise when cultures differ in their communication techniques. She shows how these obstacles come into play in contacts between the U.S. and Mexico and demonstrates that mastering the unspoken rules of Mexican culture is a key to cementing business and social relationships. Novinger concludes with nine effective, reliable principles for successfully communicating across cultures.

Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject Communications - Intercultural Communication, grade: 2,0, University of applied sciences, Marl, language: English, abstract: 1. Introduction 1.1. Problem Globalization is an ongoing process by which regional economies have become integrated through a global network of communication and trade, which simultaneously induces "globalization of culture." In an attempt to explain culture more clearly, the "Iceberg Model of Culture" can be used2 since culture is often compared to an iceberg which has both visible (on the surface) and invisible (below the surface) parts. Visible elements of culture - the "percepta"- can be seen, such as food, clothing or laws. Those elements which are not as obvious -the "concepta" - such as norms, values or beliefs are represented by the much larger portion of the iceberg underwater. In a course of increasing cross-cultural business encounters, the question arouses whether it is necessary to be acquainted with both the visible and the greater invisible part of the culture concerned - i.e. to possess intercultural competence - in order to gain international business success. 1.2. Objectives With reference to Hofstede's Dimensions of National Culture, this seminar paper has the intention to verify the close correlation between intercultural competence and international business success. In this context, it makes an attempt to visualize the "invisible" part of culture by the example of China, which gains a steadily increasing importance for the world economic growth shown by its gross domestic product real growth rate of 8.7 % est. in 20096, thus attracting more and more companies from all over the world to establish business in China.
