Abstract:

"A clash of cultures between individuals or groups often leads to embarrassment, frustration or outright anger." "When Shirley Cathy Byakutaaga realised from her cross-cultural experiences that such frustrations could be avoided if people are given tips in advance on the likely behaviour that cause a breakdown in communication, she decided to write this book: Tips on Ugandan Culture: A Visitor's Guide."

"This handbook documents some key aspects of social cultural practices that foreigners visiting or wishing to stay and work in Uganda will find useful to understand. It illustrates Ugandan English, travel language and shopping language, safety tips and non-verbal communication from real-life experiences of people the author has met through cross-cultural courses, interviews, observations and research."--Jacket.
