Publisher Comments:

`The publication of this Second Edition of Culture's Consequences marks an important moment in the field of cross-cultural studies... for business researchers interested in doing cross-cultural work. A teaching aid for introducing the notion of cultural differences to business students, [it] provides an easy-to-understand framework with numerous examples of their practical applicability. Hofstede's framework for understanding national differences has been one of the most influential and widely used frameworks in cross-cultural business studies, in the past ten years' - Australian Journal of Management</p> <p></p> <p>The long-anticipated Second Edition of a true classic is thoroughly updated with an expanded coverage and scope. This excellent work explores the differences in thinking and social action that exist between members of more than 50 modern nations and will be the new benchmark for scholars and professionals for years to come. It argues that people carry `mental programmes' which are developed in the family in early childhood and reinforced in school and organizations, and that these mental programmes contain a component of national culture. They are most clearly expressed in the different values that predominate among people from different countries.</p> <p>

Book News Annotation:

This is a paperbound reprint of the second edition (2001) of a 1980 book on the norms of thinking and social action in 50 countries. The study uses the IBM Attitude Survey Questionnaire to provide cross-disciplinary analyses of the factors of power distance, uncertainty avoidance, individualism and collectivism, sex/gender, long- vs. short-term orientation, cultures in organizations, and intercultural encounters. Appendices include the questionnaire; countries' scores; correlation of those scores to data from other sources; case studies from an organizational cultures research project; and a brief essay on the author's values. Hofstede (emeritus, organizational anthropology and international management, Maastricht U.) has served as a consultant to such international organizations as the World Bank and the Commission of the European Union.
