Cover Paperback

It is the only book to explicate the relationship between culture and national differences in speed of economic growth, corruption and the rule of law (as measured by Transparency International and the Kaufman-Kraay index), murder rates, socioeconomic inequality (as measured by the Gini index), adolescent fertility rates, HIV rates, road death tolls, happiness and life satisfaction, educational achievement, suicide rates, gender inequality, and religiousness, to name just the most important variables.

There is a special focus on why East Asia and Eastern Europe are generally eager to absorb Western cultural influence whereas the societies from Morocco to Pakistan exhibit some resistance to such influence, and the historic origins of these cultural dimensions are analysed.

Each rigorously peer-reviewed chapter is strengthened further by a subchapter in which implications for international management and organizational behaviour are discussed, making the book attractive not only to readers with a special interest in the social sciences, but also to management consultants, management educators and business executives.
