I agree with the terms and conditions, especially point 10 (only private use, no transmission to third party) and accept that my order cannot be revoked.

From the introduction:

Recognizing the importance of successfully managing cross-cultural encounters and transactions and, thus, the ever-increasing relevance of the theoretical notions on Transculturality, this chapter aims to contribute to the understanding of the still somewhat vague, multifaceted construct of Transcultural Competence by examining and elaborating on one specific dimension of the overall concept. After shortly introducing and discussing the overall concept of Transcultural Competences, we would like to (...) specifically examine “Focus on Commonalities” as one essential dimension of Transcultural Competence. Thereby, we will be emphasizing its relevance and importance for the overall construct and discussing some potential human universals, which allow for the assumption of pan-cultural commonalities. Subsequently, we will introduce a first set of measures which pave the way for the assessment of Focus on Commonalities. Finally, we will discuss the findings of the chapter and conclude by re-emphasizing the importance e of Transcultural Competence.
