Summary: This book centers around two major questions, which provide the underlying rationale for the book: What is a paradox, and why are cross-cultural paradoxes essential for understanding the changes that are occurring because of globalization? Unlike many books on globalization, which begin with a proposition or a few propositions that the author then attempts to explain and defend in detail, there are no propositions being defended in the book. Rather, the emphasis is o ...show moren understanding the changes that are occurring as a result of globalization through the use of 92 cross-cultural paradoxes. As the innovative Table of Contents indicates, I use the traditional textbook approach for Parts and Chapters and discuss the paradoxes within these chapters. The consensus definition of paradox is used in this book, that is, a statement incorporating inconsistent and sometimes contradictory elements that appears to be untrue but is in fact true. For example, how can time be considered as three circles (past, present, and future) as well as only one circle? Ordinarily the explanation of each paradox requires the use of another factor or variable. In this book that variable is frequently cross-cultural in nature, as the title of the book indicates. Each of the 92 paradoxes is structured in a question/discussion format (see Table of Contents). Each question is designed to engage the reader and suggests the paradox to be discussed within the appropriate chapter. Part 1, Conceptual Foundations, emphasizes thinking paradoxically (Ch. 1) and conceptualizing and perceiving culture (Ch. 2). Part 2, Behavioral Processes, highlights traditional topics within Organizational Behavior in chapters on leadership,motivation, and group behavior across cultures; communicating across cultures; crossing cultures; and cross-cultural negotiations. Part 3, The Broader Context, includes chapters on multi-ethnicity, religion, geography, and immigration; economic development and culture; globalization and culture; and business strategy, business functions, and International Human Resource Management. ...show less
