Description - Cultural Imperative by Richard Lewis
Will the tidal wave of globalisation lead us to a bland and uniform cultural landscape dominated by a unified cultural perspective? Will cultural imperialism triumph in the twenty-first century? Or will culture, which drives human behaviour through religion, language, geography and history, maintain its influence on the human consciousness?In The Cultural Imperative world-renowned intercultural expert Richard D. Lewis, , explores these questions, examines the forces that keep us from taking off our cultural spectacles and explains how cultural traits are to deeply embedded to be homogenised, as predicted by so many others. This is the cultural imperative.
