This concise, easy–to–read introduction to American culture helps newcomers feel at home, make friends, and enjoy everyday life. Read independently or in class as an outline for discussion, it provides both practical “survival” information and facts that will lead to cross–cultural insights. The book is given to new students in many universities and language programs in the U.S. and abroad.

This new edition has updated information and has been reformated to make it easier to use as a reference. Throughout the book, revisions have been made to this edition reflecting the rapid changes in technology and culture in the United States and today’s world.

The first section, Basic Information, includes information on many practical survival topics. For example: what everyone needs to know about money, food, restaurants, drinking and smoking laws, hotels, many kinds of communication in today’s world from smart phones to email; electricity and electronics; transportation; shopping; health/medical care and safety; tipping; and measures used in the U.S. The second section, Customs and Values, explains many aspects of U.S. culture. It includes valuable tips on U.S. business etiquette. The third section on Country Facts provides useful information and insights into U.S. history, geography, the environment, and technology. The Appendix on the 50 States that gives comparative statistical and political information has been updated since the 2014 elections.
