Global Etiquette Guide to Africa and the Middle East

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

* Country-by-country protocols and customs

* International business musts and faux pas

* Dining, hosting, gift giving, and more

* Cross-cultural explorations

Did you know:

* In Senegal, you may extend your wrist-- or even an elbow-- in place of a handshake if you are holding something you cannot put down?

* You risk offending your Saudi Arabian guests if, after seeing them off, you leave before they've disappeared from view?

In today's high-stakes, highly charged international business world, you simply can't afford a misunderstood gesture, an ill-placed word, or a misinformed judgment. The Global Etiquette Guide to Africa and the Middle East shows both business and leisure travelers how to understand, appreciate, and manage-- as well as maximize the benefits of-- the myriad cultural differences that can exist between you and your African or Middle Eastern business hosts. This fact-filled cultural guidebook provides detailed advice on:

? Dining ? Drinking ? Speaking ? Eye contact ? Hailing a taxi ? Dress ? Negotiating ? Gift giving ? Conducting a meeting ? Tipping ? Holidays ? Dealing with authorities

Just as customs vary greatly between the African/Middle Eastern region and the United States, so do they vary among the diverse nations of Africa and the Middle East. What is proper and expected in South Africa, for example, may be a deal-breaker in Syria. With today's politically changed realities, understanding these distinctions is more important than ever. The Global Etiquette Guide to Africa and the Middle East will familiarize you with the customs, habits, tastes, and mores of every key African and Middle Eastern nation--over forty in all-- and help you guarantee the mutual respect and acceptance that are vital for keeping every international business relationship agreeable, effective, and successful.

Wiley's Global Etiquette Series provides the practical information you need to travel and conduct business in foreign countries and cultures. Each easy-to-navigate reference book is filled with helpful hints, do's and don'ts, and other rules of the road for travelers of all types.
