Summary

Author Gary Althen has added plenty of new and fine-tuned material to this edition of American Ways to provide the clearest insights yet into the American psyche and culture. Many of the chapters include a new section, "Suggestions for Foreign Visitors," adding a distinctly practical dimension.

To help foreigners understand the enigmatic Americans, Althen has greatly expanded a section on individualism and has reconceptualized his chapter "Ways of Reasoning" to become one of the best-organized and clearest basic presentations of American thought processes written to date.

Another new chapter, on race and ethnic relations, focuses on how foreign visitors perceive racial and ethnic groups in American society and how Americans view these subcultures. A case study clarifies how extremely complex this aspect of American life is. Other enhanced sections include the concept of friendship, major changes in family structure and values, the American obsessiveness with personal hygiene, culture shock and adjustment, the Internet and e-mail, and additional helpful activities for learning about American culture.

American Ways covers all the basic needs of the foreign student or businessperson, from understanding American society to making one's way in daily life. The book discusses customs, cultural values, politics, education, religion, male/female relationships, sports and recreation, driving, shopping, behavior in public places, studying, business, and nonverbal communication.
