Cross-Cultural Dialogues (2nd ed. 2017)

In this book Craig Storti presents and examines cultural differences in the exact form most of us usually encounter them: in conversations with other people. Through a series of 74 dialogues—8- to 10-line exchanges between a speaker from the United States and one from another culture—readers will watch as two people completely misunderstand each other, without ever realizing it has happened. Then, in one-page analyses of the conversations, readers will see how the misunderstanding took place and what cultural differences caused the misinterpretations. The book features cultural differences between Americans and people from 10 other cultural groups: Arab/Middle Eastern, British, Chinese, French, German, Latino, Indian, Japanese, Mediterranean/European, and Russian. With its recreation of "real" incidents, Cross-Cultural Dialogues comes as close as you can get on the printed page to actually experiencing cultural differences.
