4.0 von 5 Sternen Good introduction to the Spanish culture 4. Mai 2002
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
"Spain is different" ist für jedermann geeignet - auch für nicht U.S. Amerikaner. Obwohl es in Helen Wattley-Ames Ausgabe um den direkten Vergleich zwischen Amerikanern und Spaniern geht, können auch Europäer von diesem Buch profitieren und viele vielleicht schon erlebte Situationen besser verstehen. Obwohl Wattley-Ames viele wichtige Punkte adressiert, die zu einer besseren Kommunikation mit den Spaniern führen, fehlten mir doch öfter detailiertere Informationen. Beispiele werden leider nur wenige angebracht und das Buch ist daher eher theoretisch als mit Fällen aus der Praxis gestaltet. Wer also nicht auf der Suche nach einem Wegweiser ist, sondern nur sein Wissen erweitern möchte, sollte auf jeden Fall einen Blick in dieses Buch werfen!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Different... in spite of it all 7. Mai 2002
Von Mark C. Aldrich - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This is a very useful book for people with little knowledge of contemporary Spain. In keeping with the goals of the Interact Series, of which it is a volume, "Spain is Different" highlights basic cultural differences between Spain and the United States. (The title refers playfully to a much mocked tourist slogan from the 1960s.) This brief book is not a travel guide, nor does it offer much in terms of historical overview. Wattley-Ames does, however, explain in straight forward fashion basic dynamics of Spanish society that will be unfamiliar to many Americans. Her writing is clear and to the point. (After an introductory chapter that situates Spain in relationship to Europe, Latin America and the United States there follow chapters on Society and the Individual; Relationships; Language and Communication; Work; and, finally, Play.) For example, her four page summary of Spanish family relationships is, with one exception that I'll get to in a moment, right on target. Not only does she situate family life in a broad social context that will be helpful to Americans planning a visit or move to Spain, but she also points out common Spanish feelings about American families: "As for the American habit of moving to the other side of the country or the world without a backward glance, most Spaniards are both envious and dismayed." It's a perceptive and accurate observation. Now, for the exception: in the same section on the family, she has this to say about the thorny issue of child raising in an American-Spanish marriage: "The American is inevitably stricter than the Spaniard about mealtimes, snacks, treats, and naps. Spanish children typically enjoy large quantities of attention and few rules at home." This last sentence is true, but a Spanish parent, especially a mother, may find American eating habits and table manners decidedly lenient. (And as an American married to a Spaniard, well, maybe I'm the exception to Wattley-Ames' rule...) Wattley-Ames' text is judiciously sprinkled with Spanish words and expressions that serve to underscore observations. She is clearly knowledgeable of her subject matter and the book is free of significant errors, although I might quibble with some omissions. (Her discussion of regional languages and linguistic politics, for example, is a little misleading and too brief.) On the other hand, her observations on Spanish social life are particularly astute. Just as importantly, she is well aware of the dangers of generalization and stereotyping, and combats this intelligently by accompanying her observations with appropriate real life examples, proverbs, quotes from respected Spanish observers, etc. Of particular value are the chapter ending "encounters", which provide concrete examples of situations in which an American would benefit from having 'cultural literacy' regarding Spanish customs and behaviors. There is a brief bibliography that includes a valuable section on recent Spanish cinema.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Fifty fifty 4. Februar 2013
Von Francisco - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I bought this out of curiosity, since I am working my way to Japan and read the book 'With respect to the Japanese' from the same book series. I was surprised when I saw there was even one for Spain, so I decided to give it a try.
As a native Spaniard, I felt myself identified at times only. However, I have lived out of Spain for 5 years now, in Germany, Lebanon and the USA, and the way I behave does not seem to match the way that is described in the book entirely. Maybe I am not a good example of what the Spanish culture is anymore. The author describes situations, with which I am not in total agreement.
The first edition was published in 1992, and the second in 1999. There must have been a lot of change since then. And I believe it is changing at a rapid rate. The author may consider the publication of a third edition.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Helpful for those new to Spain 5. September 2013
Von S. Grotzke - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Point: Spain as a location, culture, and people is absolutely unique.

Path: The author leads the reader through a maze of cultural confrontations between the standard citizen of Spain and that of the United States. The concept of Spain as a country is considered in chapter 1. Chapter 2 deals with society structure and the individual. Relationships , communication, and work take up the next three chapters. The final chapter addresses the Spaniard and his diversion.
The chapters include a spanish point of view and an "american" point of view. Each chapter ends with a probable scenario of a confrontation between the two cultures and offers choices on how to handle it.

Sources: The author spent extensive time in Spain and then interviewed a variety of Spaniards and Americans.

Agreement: I appreciated the work of the author. Although describing a culture automatically includes generalizations, I felt that the author did a good job at expressing both cultures. I think that reading this book will give me a better understanding of the Spaniard and his/her culture.

Personal App: Am I willing to adjust my personal culture as I see how others live and think? Perhaps my way isn't the best.

Favorite Quote: "Spain's worth resides in what it is, much less than in what it produces by the labor of its people." Fernando de la Torre (121).

It would be worth another read and I would recommend it.

well written, slightly pedestrian, useful to someone planning to live in Spain. Attitudes change rather rapidly today, how long will those statement be yrue?
4.0 von 5 Sternen Good for cultural understanding 10. März 2013
Von Sarah O'leary - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
This book was suggested to me by an American living in Spain before I began my study abroad. It is an easy, quick, and informative read. While I feel that it is targeted towards Americans working in Spain (I am a student) it was still valuable for me in gaining a deeper understanding of the culture. I suggest it for any American that will be moving to Spain.
