As William Gay, distinguished adviser to the last edition, so aptly noted, the United States is "a country that is never what you think it is." Since that edition was introduced nearly ten years ago, the country has been struggling with troubling, divisive events and issues, especially the SepteMer 11, 2001, attacks and the resulting War on Terror. Despite these extraordinary times, the United States still holds promise and opportunity for those who take the time to understand it. Jef Davis, a seasoned interculturalist and long-time adviser to international travelers, has succeeded as few could in creating an important new version of Living in the U.S.A. that will guide you through the confusing, conflicted, exciting country and its diverse population at an extraordinary time in its history. New material and significantly revised chapters help you understand: American Cultures: Sections on African Americans, Latinos, Asian Americans, Native peoples, retirees, gays and lesbians and the disabled underscore the incredible diversity of culture and values that comprise the American population Twenty-First Century Issues such as the continued rise in religious fundamentalism in the U.S. and abroad and the tension between security and personal liberties Getting Here and Getting Settled, including security at the airport and elsewhere and new and trying immigration regulations

Short-term visitors to the U.S. will find advice for surviving customs and immigration, finding an apartment, doing business, obtaining health care, and navigating the supermarket, bank and post office. If you plan to stay longer, you will find practical pointers for getting along at work, school, and at home; buying a house; making and keeping American friends; and understanding dominant American values in a diverse and complex society. Living in the U.S.A. is a comprehensive guide to attitudes, customs, manners and daily life in the United States.
