About this list

Below you will find links to books and online resources dedicated to communicating across cultures. Think of it this way: You are only ever one book away from building cross-cultural skills. You can read a country-specific culture guide, write a summary for yourself or your classmates, and then follow up your research with a trip. For those interested in building work-specific cross-cultural skills, this list also offers cross-cultural business and etiquette guides. And you might also consider reading up on North American culture, since the better you understand your home country’s customs, the more confident you’ll become at comparing and contrasting your home culture with those of the places you visit.
