The Bridge: A Journal of Cross-Cultural Affairs; Summer 1976, Volume 1, Number 2.
Reynolds, Collins, Ed.
This quarterly newsletter, announced in RIE on a one-time basis, investigates a different area of the world in each issue. It is intended for use by businessmen, government officials, and educators. Typical issues include feature articles highlighting problems of crossing cultural boundaries to teach, do business, or cope overseas and at home; surveys of foreign and domestic cultural data; resources; book reviews; and activities such as quizzes. This particular issue, concentrating on European affairs, features an interview with Assistant Secretary of State for Educational and Cultural Affairs, John Richardson, Jr., in which the importance of cultural relations is stressed. The issue also contains an article discussing recent recessionary trends in most European countries. To aid American businesses in relocating employees and preparing them for overseas living, another article describes four information packages. Also included in this issue are a listing of resource materials for use in teaching and research on the environment; a cross-cultural quiz which tests how well the reader can deal with customs of people in other countries; a listing of reading and resource materials which may be ordered from the Center; and descriptions of 12 types of overseas live-in experiences sponsored by the Bureau of International Relations.
