The interaction of people from different countries and cultures around the world is the domain of the cross-cultural management field. Today, cross-cultural management seems to have been assimilated in the knowledge base of man-agement scholars and is defined by a set of distinguishing features. However, in order to deepen our understanding of cross-cultural management, we need to take stock of, and organize, the huge amount knowledge produced to date by management scholars dealing with cross-cultural management issues. Accordingly, the ultimate goal of this book is to unveil the mosaic of cross-cultural management, a mosaic of words and concepts that has developed over the last about five decades. As a result of our journey, we don’t expect that the concept of cross-cultural management will be com-pletely revised. However, it will appear richer and sharper, thus allowing the reader to more effectively understand it as a part of that large network of interconnected concepts to which we all give the name of knowledge.
