The 2nd edition ebook is structured around 5 major dimensions: power distance; individualism versus collectivism; uncertainty avoidance; masculinity versus femininity; and long term versus short-term orientation.
“An important, complex and sophisticated monograph. . . . Both the theoretical analysis and the empirical findings constitute major contributions to cross-cultural value analysis and the cross-cultural study of organizational dynamics and work motivations. This ebook is also a valuable resource for anyone interested in a historical or anthropological approach to cross-cultural comparisons.”
