Essential to avoid offense or embarrassment (particularly in the formal cultures of the Middle and Far East), this authoritative guide is ideal for anyone with business, diplomatic, or journalistic contacts abroad-in person, by phone, by fax or letter. In more than 200 entries (covering all the world's major countries) the book gives clear advice on thousands of areas which cause difficulty for the English-speaker, including: How should you approach the long name strings used in the Arab world?, What is the order of Japanese and Chinese names?, What do you need to know about special business forms of address in Korea?, and new trends in the former Soviet States.
