This work provides a systematic look at cultural differences across a variety of fields: commercial, bureaucratic, professional and social settings, illustrated with many case studies and examples. It shows readers how to deal with different norms, expectations and behaviour patterns, and how to cope with what outsiders often see as the rudeness and abruptness of everyday life in Israel, where there is little predictability and where things can appear to be always in motion.

Author Biography - Lucy Shahar
Lucy Shahar and David Kurz have developed a personal perspective on Israeli culture through twenty-odd years of living in Israel, undergoing the adjustment process, becoming part of an Israeli family, and gradually feeling that they belong. Shahar has been conducting cross-cultural workshops for more than fifteen years for Israelis and Americans. Kurz has worked for over fifteen years in community development with immigrant groups. Their combines experiences have given them an opportunity to understand how Americans and Israelis perceive and misperceive each other.
