Summary
"This book depicts the world's national and ethnic cultures in an unprecedented way. It is based on analyses of all publicly available large databases that provide cultural indicators about modern nations: the World Values Survey, the United Nations Statistics Division, the world Health Organization and many academic studies. The author explains some of the main cultural differences between modern nations and ethnic groups across the globe. The readers will understand why human societies differ on many important indicators and what culture has to do with these: speed of economic development, happiness, tolerance of diversity, religiousness, national pride, educational achievement, difficult integration of immigrants, suicides rates, gender equality, violent crime, competition for women and sexual norms, adolescent fertility and HIV rates, corruption, rule of law, road death tolls, punctuality"--P. [4] of cover
