Summary
A Bridge Too Far or Seldom Crossed...is a fascinating socio-economic commentary on how traditional societies attempt to integrate into the modern world. Through countless hours of research, interviews and revelations, Ruby Welch studies the Maori and how the contemporary concept of work, labor and capitalism conflicts with their previously held beliefs. This absorbing case study will open your eyes to work related perspectives, not only through the Maori but every other world culture as well. Our world is changing and this book provides an interesting commentary on how all cultures are expected to adapt
