Whether you're a business person visiting for a week or a foreign student visiting for a semester, American Ways, A Cultural Guide to the United States covers all your basic needs - from the trends and customs of day-to-day activities to the more esoteric customs regarding cultural values, politics, education, religion and relationships.

The authors discuss the lasting effects of the Bush-administration policies and controversies as well as the impact of the nation's first black president.
