Book Description:
Cultural diversity is the variety of human societies or cultures in a specific region, or in the world as a whole. (The term is also sometimes used to refer to multiculturalism within an organization. As well as the more obvious cultural differences that exist between people, such as language, dress and traditions, there are also significant variations in the way societies organize themselves, in their shared conception of morality, and in the ways they interact with their environment. It can be argued that cultural diversity may be vital for the long-term survival of humanity; and that the conservation of indigenous cultures may be as important to humankind as the conservation of species and ecosystems is to life in general. This new and important book gathers the latest research from around the globe in the study of this dynamic field with a focus on related topics such as: Australian multiculturalism, language identity in multicultural Canada, cultural diversity of immigrants and international trade, cultural diversity tourism, cross cultural knowledge of Native Americans and others)
