Transculturalism and Business in the BRIC States is the first handbook on the BRIC States that offers a transcultural perspective, which goes beyond the typical “how to” manuals or economic projections and provides an understanding of transculturalism as it is studied and practiced in the respective countries themselves. This unique reference book also offers insights into the relations between the corresponding states and the challenges facing those trying to foster more intense business exchanges.

Here is a taste of what people have been saying about the book…

“Using original models and metaphors that shed interesting new light, this publication is an accessible introduction to both transcultural theory and the BRIC area, and is suitable for both scholars and practitioners. The chapters on bilateral BRIC relations were an especially rewarding read, providing us with a multifaceted picture of the complexity of doing business in the BRIC area.” – Juergen Bolten, University of Jena, Germany

“A valuable source and resource for all interested in the BRICs. Academics, students, journalists, managers and politicians can all profit from this extensive volume. It tackles theoretical and conceptual problems regarding not only the historical use of the term BRICS, but also how the “transcultural encounter or cross cultural relations” have been interpreted and dealt with by different academic fields in the member countries. In this reader the complexity of culture appears in full force!” – Livia Barbosa, Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
