    Macbeth the King

    By Nigel Tranter
    Authors:
    Nigel Tranter
    Across a huge colourful canvas, ranging from the wilds of Scotland to Norway, Denmark and Rome, here is the story of the real MacBeth. Set aside Shakespeare's portrait: read instead of his struggle to make and save a united Scotland. In this impressively researched and vivid portrayal, Tranter belies the popular perception of a savage, murderous ambitious king. Instead, he tells of MacBeth's struggle to make and save a united Scotland; his devotion to his great love, the young Queen Gruoch; the humane laws they fought for; the great battle they were forced to fight. And the terrible price they paid. 'Through his imaginative dialogue, he provides a voice for Scotland's heroes' Scotland on Sunday

    Management In Two Cultures

    By Eva S. Kras
    Authors:
    Eva S. Kras
    Much has been written on the economic dimensions of U.S.-Mexican business relations, but little on the more subtle and sensitive cultural issues involved. In this revised edition, Eva Kras has provided us with an updated book that confronts head-on the problems that arise out of the cultural differences between U.S. and Mexican managers. And it could not be more timely. Since the publication of this book in 1989, the Maquiladoras have increased in number, the NAFTA agreement has been ratified and is already having an impact on Mexican society, and business practices have changed and evolved in response. In this new edition, Ms. Kras has expanded her analysis and offers the reader a sharper image of her subject in the light of these developments and their meaning for interaction between U.S. and Mexican managers. Mexico's ambitious Maquiladora program-designed to foster the establishment of foreign, especially U.S., manufacturing plants in Mexico along the U.S. border-has been strikingly successful. All along the border, jointly managed industries have sprung up. The result has been a significant increase in the amount of contact between managers from the two cultures and a dramatic rise in the stakes involved in their developing effective working relationships. This practical handbook is based on extensive interviews with Mexican and U.S. managers. Ms. Kras compares the critical areas of a managerial setting in which the values and behaviors of the two cultures differ and offers specific recommendations as to how the disparities between them can be handled. In the process, she deals realistically with the problems and misunderstandings that arise between Mexican and U.S. managers and demonstrates clearly how simple but hard-to-achieve changes in attitude and style can resolve them.
