We really need to study history. Perhaps then we could bring more to tables to talk with each other. I truly believe that our ambassadors, et.al. to foreign countries should know the language, history, customs, culture of the countries they represent us to. When I wanted to teach history, I had to pass exams to prove I knew it. Why not test ambassadors, etc. for their competency in cultural affairs?

This book will help you understand why people in different countries think differently. Clotaire Rapaille The Culture Code : An Ingenious Way to Understand Why People Around the World Live and Buy as They Do.
