"From understanding American society to making one's way through daily life, [the author] has fine-tuned and freshened this new edition...to provide the clearest insights yet into the American psyche and culture. [The author] discusses customs, cultural values, politics, education, religion, male/female relationships, sports and recreation, driving, shopping, behavior in public, studying, business, and nonverbal communication, among other topics. To help foreigners better understand the enigmatic Americans, [the author] has greatly expanded [the] section on individualism and has reconceptualized [the] chapter "Ways of Reasoning" to become one of the clearest basic presentations of American thought processes written to date. Many of the chapters include a new section titled "Suggestions for Foreign Visitors," which adds a distinctly practical dimension for visitors to the United States. To help foreigners understand the subject of race and ethnic relations, [the author] focuses on how foreign visitors perceive racial and ethnic groups in American society and how Americans view these subcultures. A case study adds insight into this extremely complex aspect of American life"--
