Paul Herbig, Professor of Management/Marketing at Texas A & M International University, has prepared a helpful volume to assist companies to better understand, relate to, and work with their clients and counterparts from various cultures worldwide. Segmented into "Premarketing," "Marketing," and "Postmarketing" areas, this handbook is chock full of fascinating, well-substantiated marketing.success stories and blunders, which have been arranged carefully to demonstrate the benefits of tolerance and respect for cultural differences in conducting business on a global scale. The international windfalls and faux pas of corporate giants such as McDonald's, Disney, Coca-Cola, Polaroid, and IBM are recounted. The marketing implications of worldwide variations in per-capita income, demographics, social mores, religious traditions, language, telecommunications, distribution infrastructures, and level of media coverage are presented, with valuable references included in Notes and the Index. A critical caveat is offered to international marketers: "Do not assume that what you meant is what was understood; do not assume that what you understood is what was meant." [p.302] This reviewer has already employed the research and guidance in Professor Herbig's book to more appropriately respond to a million dollar proposal from an agency of the US Government. Such is testimony to the value and practicality of the Handbook of Cross-Cultural Marketing. -- From Independent Publisher
