How to Thrive in a Multicultural World. Eight cultural conflicts that make us who we are. As our planet gets smaller, cultural conflicts are becoming fiercer. Rather than lamenting our multicultural worlds, Hazel Rose Markus and Alana Conner reveal how we can leverage our differences to mend the rifts in our workplaces, schools, and relationships, as well as on the global stage.
Provocative, witty, and painstakingly researched, "Clash!" not only explains who we are, it also envisions who we could become.
"If you fear that cultural, political, and class differences are tearing America apart, read this important book." --Jonathan Haidt, Ph.D., author of "The Righteous Mind"
"Who will rule in the twenty-first century: allegedly more disciplined Asians, or allegedly more creative Westerners? Can women rocket up the corporate ladder without knocking off the men? How can poor kids get ahead when schools favor the rich?"
This book is a passkey that opens many doors. Using one simple principle, "Clash!" explain some of the most bedeviling cultural divides in our workplaces and communities. It's mandatory reading for teachers, managers, and parents who want to raise their kids to succeed in a multicultural world. --Chip Heath, PhD, coauthor, "Decisive: How To Make Better Choices in Life and Work" and "Switch" How To Change When Change Is Hard"
