This title focuses on the uniqueness of both the Spanish people and their culture, and on examining what effect the differences have on the way Spaniards relate to people from other cultures and interact with each other. The author begins by looking at Spain's past and at critical dimensions of present-day Spanish-American relations. She then explores certain aspects of culture important in cross-cultural interactions: society and the individual; relationships; language and communication; and work and play.
