9780142180938: Clash!: How to Thrive in a Multicultural World

"Clash! explains some of the most bedeviling cultural divides in our workplaces and communities. It's mandatory reading for teachers, managers, and parents who want to raise their kids to succeed in a multicultural world." - Chip Heath, coauthor of Decisive and Switch
 
As the world gets smaller, people from different backgrounds are colliding like never before. Leading cultural psychologists Hazel Markus and Alana Conner reveal how a single culture clash - the clash of independence and interdependence - ignites both global hostilities and daily tensions between regions, races, genders, classes, religions, and organizations. Markus and Conner then show how we can leverage both independence and interdependence to mend the rifts in our communities, workplaces, and schools.

Provocative, witty, and painstakingly researched, Clash! not only explains who we are, it also envisions who we could become.

From the Author:

As the world gets smaller, people with different cultural backgrounds are colliding like never before. CLASH! reveals that a single root cause drives many of these conflicts, from global struggles between regions and nations, to everyday tensions between genders, races, social classes, religions, and even workplaces. CLASH! then shows how we can bridge these cultural divides for greater peace and prosperity.

From the Inside Flap:

Advance Praise for Clash!

 "Better than any book I know, Clash! illuminates the cultural influences in our everyday lives and how they underlie the major identity clashes of our times. This delightfully written book also imparts a better understanding of ourselves." -Claude Steele, PhD, author of Whistling Vivaldi: How Stereotypes Affect Us and What We Can Do
 

"A brilliant and highly accessible exposition of new scientific findings about profound cultural differences. As the world grows smaller and flatter, the wisdom of Clash! will prove essential for effective functioning." -Richard E. Nisbett, PhD, author of Intelligence and How to Get It
 
"Finally! An entertaining and scientifically rigorous explanation of how our cultures work on us and how we can work on them.  Clash! is a must-read for crafting effective personal change strategies that work within and across most cultures." -Philip Zimbardo, PhD, author, The Lucifer Effect
 
"In the conflict of cultures lies, paradoxically, the ability to construct a self with integrity, agility, and the potential to grow in ways previously unimagined. Full of good science and sage advice, Clash! provides the evidence and strength to approach the hard question, "Who am I?" -Mahzarin Banaji, PhD, author of Blindspot: Hidden Biases of Good People
 
"In this eye-opening guide to becoming a more complete person in a divided world, difference (ethnic, religious, racial, political, gender) is a virtue. Clash! expresses the biggest idea in cultural psychology of the past three decades." -Richard Shweder, PhD, author, Why Do Men Barbecue? Recipes for Cultural Psychology

"We all see the daily battles around us - liberals versus conservatives, religious conservatives versus the more secular, and so on. This book explains why these battles are so fierce and the sides seem so unwilling to compromise. This fun volume will educate you in remarkable ways, and fundamentally alter the way you understand the world." -Ed Diener, PhD, coauthor, Happiness: Unlocking the Mysteries of Psychological Wealth
