Living in the U.S.A., Sixth Edition
Intercultural Press| ISBN 1931930198 | 2004-12 | PDF | 243 pages | 832 KB

As William Gay, distinguished adviser to the last edition, so aptly noted, the United States is "a country that is never what you think it is." Since that edition was introduced nearly ten years ago, the country has been struggling with troubling, divisive events and issues, especially the September 11, 2001, attacks and the resulting War on Terror. Despite these extraordinary times, the United States still holds promise and opportunity for those who take the time to understand it. Jef Davis, a seasoned interculturalist and long-time adviser to international travelers, has succeeded as few could in creating an important new version of Living in the U.S.A. that will guide you through the confusing, conflicted, exciting country and its diverse population at an extraordinary time in its history. New material and significantly revised chapters help you understand: American Cultures: Sections on African Americans, Latinos, Asian Americans, Native peoples, retirees, gays and lesbians and the disabled underscore the incredible diversity of culture and values that comprise the American population Twenty-First Century Issues such as the continued rise in religious fundamentalism in the U.S. and abroad and the tension between security and personal liberties Getting Here and Getting Settled, including security at the airport and elsewhere and new and trying immigration regulations.
How to Be an Alien (Penguin Readers)

How to Be an Alien (Penguin Readers)
Penguin Books Ltd| ISBN 0140816755 |1998-02-26 | PDF | 48 pages | 1.69 MB

How to be an Alien (1946) was the first book by George Mikes. It poked gentle fun at the English and their relationship with foreigners, written from his perspective as a fresh immigrant from Hungary. The book is characterised by much humour, affection and a total lack of rancour or bitterness. Perhaps influenced by the works of the prolific and (in the English-speaking world) little-known satirical writer Frigyes Karinthy, Mikes demonstrated not only his knowledge of English society but an insight into the English language.

РИМ. Афиша. Путеводитель
Ольга Гринкруг | Афиша | 2005 год | doc+pdf | 142 стр | 4,64 Mb

Существует как минимум два Рима.
Один — Рим классический. Тот, в котором были великие полководцы и великие злодеи, в котором воздвигались амфитеатры, термы и триумфальные арки, произносились речи, устраивались гладиаторские бои и замучивались до смерти христиане.
А другой — это все, что было после. Загадочно мерцающие византийские мозаики с тонконогими агнцами, длиннорукими святыми и курчавыми ветвями древа жизни. Колокольни с кустами колонн. Пышно изукрашенные фасады. Грандиозные площади. Возникающие из темных углов фрески.

Germany: Unraveling an Enigma
Intercultural Press | ISBN: 1877864757 | January 2000 | 217 pages | RAR | PDF | 650 KB

Finally - a well-researched and up-to-date book on Germany and the Germans. The author gives some historical background, an overview of German cultural themes, a comparison between typical German and American communication patterns, and an overview of the German business model and business beharviors. The last chapter is devoted to exploring the changes in German society at the turn of the 21st century. As one of them (yes, I am German), I have felt accurately portrayed, without the stereotypical mindlessnesses that tends to charactarize a lot of American authors writing about Germany. Two thumbs up! This book is a gem.
Gale Encyclopedia of Multicultural America (3 Volume Set)

Jeffrey Lehman, «Gale Encyclopedia of Multicultural America (3 Volume Set)»
Thomson Gale | ISBN: 0787639869 | 2nd Edition (February 2000) | 1974 pages | PDF | 20 Mb

The three volumes of this edition address 152 ethnic, ethnoreligious, and Native American cultures currently residing in the United States. The average essay length is 8,000 words, but ranges from slightly less than 3,000 to more than 20,000 words, depending on the amount of information available. Essays are arranged alphabetically by the most-commonly cited name for the group—although such terms as Sioux and Gypsy may be offensive to some members of the groups themselves, as noted in the essays. Every essay in the first edition appears in the second edition of Gale Encyclopedia of Multicultural America, though some are in a different form. For example, the Lebanese Americans and Syrian Americans originally were covered in a single essay on Syrian/Lebanese Americans; in this book, they are separate entries. Additionally, the editors selected 50 more cultures based on the original volume’s two main criteria: size of the group according to 1990 U.S. Census data and the recommendations of the advisory board. The advisors chose groups likely to be studied in high school and college classrooms.
