Description - American Cultural Patterns:Cross-Cultural Perspective by Edward C. Stewart

This study of American behavioural and thought patterns analyzes Americans' perceptual processes and how they contrast with the ways of thinking of other cultures. The text covers language and non-verbal behaviour and breaks down cultural patterns into four dimensions: form of activity, form of social relations, perception of the world, and perception of the self. This study helps the reader examine the cultural dimensions of communication and their implications for cross-cultural interaction.
