This book is divided into three sections: 1) Global Impressions; 2) Cross-Cultural Journeys Within the U.S. Culture; and 3) Unique Cross-Cultural Considerations. Global Impressions presents observations from Schnell's visits to the six humanly inhabited continents. The observations are dated and offer insights to the functioning of each culture at a given point in time. Cross-Cultural Journeys Within the U.S. Culture shares his observations of varied locations in the United States that involved unique cultural constructs: a hippie commune, social fraternity, church camp, small college and religion based retreat community. Unique Cross-Cultural Considerations discusses phenomena the cross-cultural traveler can encounter: culture shock, the "open road" as cultural place, and the role of new communication technologies on the evolving cultural context.
