This book also provides a lot of charts and lists with main points, so it is easy to find relevant information quickly.
Also nonsense such as, primarily of the second portion of ‘‘The Universal Declaration of Human Rights adopted in 1948 was based on individualist Western values that were and are not shared by the political leaders nor by the populations of the collectivist majority of the world population’’(415) notwithstanding the insultingly simplistic binary these ‘developing nations’ who were indebted/exploited for their low wages with speculative profits not reinvested because of the paucity of ‘human rights’ would like them and remunerative working conditions if you asked them, which is acknowledged just after but which questions why the former was posited ''Without losing the benefits of the present declaration, which in an imperfect way presents at least a norm used to appeal against gross violations, the international community should revise the declaration to include, for example, the rights of groups and minorities.

This specialization has created a scattered landscape of disciplines that misunderstand or neglect one another and that have limited predictive value in real social life. It is also useful to break down one's own nation (for example, some Americans lean toward the British way of thinking while others are more German-like). There's a lot of detail and statistical analysis of all of this survey data to explain the differences.When I repeated some of these assumptions made by Hofstede to some of my colleagues from other parts of the world, they were very surprised, and all of them (yes, all of them) disagreed with the generalisations of themselves, and how they perceived others.
