Four Overarching Patterns of Culture (Book)

Year of publication: 2019

Publisher: Wipf & Stock

Genre: Intercultural Communication, Sociology

Description: This book is for anyone working across cultures—teachers, trainers, business leaders, communicators. It claims most cultures fall into four types—justice, honor, harmony, or reciprocity—and shows how people in these cultures tend to think, act, and communicate. Co-written with my father, Robert Strauss, the book blends firsthand accounts of international travels and trainings with academic theory drawn from sociology, intercultural studies, anthropology, and communication studies. By gaining cultural intelligence, we can recognize our own implicit cultural patterns. We can move from being ethnocentric to culturally sensitive.
