Contributor(s): Bruhwiler, Claudia Franziska [Editor] | Sanchez, Yvette [Editor].
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: Surrey Gower Publishing 2015Description: xxvi, 373 p.ISBN: 9781472444011.Subject(s): Management - Cross-cultural studies | Organizational behavior | Intercultural communication - BRIC countries | International business enterprisesDDC classification: 302.35091724 Summary: Transculturalism and Business in the BRIC States, edited by Yvette Sa¡nchez and Claudia Franziska Brahwiler, is the first handbook on the BRIC States that offers a transcultural perspective, which goes beyond the typical ’how to’ manuals or economic projections and provides an understanding of transculturalism as it is studied and practiced in the respective countries themselves. This unique reference book also offers insights into the relations between the corresponding states and the challenges facing those trying to foster more intense business exchanges. The reader learns to interpret cross-cultural issues from the perspectives of the BRIC states themselves and gains insight into the way scholars in the BRIC area reflect on transculturalism. Moreover, it introduces the reader to fresh visualizations that help consider transculturalism beyond the known categories. The book will appeal, on the one hand, to practitioners who are active in the BRIC states and wish to better grasp the challenges to business relations, as well as the intra-area dynamics and, on the other hand, to scholars in transcultural studies and international management, due to its insider approach. Since the book combines theoretical concepts with a clear geographic focus and a critical approach to traditional models, it is suitable for both academic audiences as well as for practitioners who appreciate a sound theoretical base and a fresh take on a subject. https://www.routledge.com/Transculturalism-and-Business-in-the-BRIC-States-A-Handbook/Sanchez-Bruhwiler/p/book/9781472444011
