Understanding EuropeansBook - 1990
Millions of Americans travel to Europe every year for business and pleasure. Many are perplexed by the way Europeans think and behave. Europeans often seem rude and distant, or they seem offended by the outgoing, friendly nature of Americans. In Understanding Europeans, Stuart Miller attempts to untangle the mystery of the Homo europus - the modern European. He offers a brief, insightful course in European history, showing how events of the distant as well as the recent past have shaped European thinking and behavior. Importantly, in his observations on European differences, Miller also sheds light on the roots of American behavior. Miller lived in Europe for many years, studying European culture and ultimately marrying a European. His book is replete with sharp insights and tellingly funny anecdotes about the tendency of Americans and Europeans to stumble over one anothers' cultures. Understanding Europeans is an essential book for travelers, business people, students, and anyone who wishes to understand our European cousins.
