Historic and geographic influences on cultural difference: shared past relations and how they can cause small cultural differences to become big issues
Intercultural communication: direct and indirect feedback, titles or first names, expressive or controlled.
Different European perceptions of Poles: Polish business people through the eyes of other European countries
