Cross-cultural Conversation: Initiation
Anindita Niyogi Balslev
Scholars Press, 1996 - Social Science - 236 pages

The clarity provided by their reflections concerning both the rewards and limitations of cross-cultural studies will be increasingly important now that we've entered the pluralistic world of the new millennium.
