Summary
In this book, Miguel E. Basáñez presents a provocative look at the impact of culture on global development. Drawing on extensive quantitative data, he identifies three "hyper clusters" of culture in the world - honor, achievement and joy - and argues that these cultures are directly related to the speed with which social, cultural and economic development occurs.--
