This book proves that there is a direct correlation between the amount of time the Japanese male professors spent in America and their conflict management style. Many foreign born professors teaching on American campuses face culture-based misunderstandings with their students. The book reports on how Japanese male professors handle conflict in college classrooms. Specifically, what cultural issues create communication problems and interpersonal conflicts. It offers examples of how the professors resolve these problems. The author then compares and contrasts the results of her studies with female Japanese professors. Based on the results of this research she outlines the factors that contribute to these problems. Concluding, she then offers helpful suggestions on how to overcome intercultural differences. These solutions are not limited to Japanese professors teaching in America. The study will be instructive for anyone interested in cross-cultural conflict resolution.
