About this product
- DescriptionARIZONA'S INDIAN COUNTRY!--Twenty-eight percent of Arizona, the 6th largest of the American states, is INDIAN COUNTRY. Arizona was Indian Country thousands of years before the first Europeans set foot on the North and South American continents, and it is still Indian Country today! Seventeen tribes live on 23 Reservations that encompass a total of over 20 million acres that include some of the most diverse and spectacular scenery on planet Earth. Many of Arizona's most amazing attractions-cultural, geographic, historical and recreational-are in its Indian Country! In fact, Arizona owes much of its fame to several serendipitous circumstances: the great Grand Canyon, its spectacular desert and mountain scenery, its climate, and its Indian nations. This is a historical, ecomic, social, cultural and recreational guide to the state's Native American people...an amazing story of their survival in the face of incredible odds and their growing importance in Arizona.
- Author BiographyA long-time resident of Paradise Valley, Arizona, Boye Lafayette De Mente has been involved with Japan, China, Korea and Mexico since the late 1940s as a member of a U.S. intelligence agency, student, journalist, editor and author working out of Tokyo, Seoul, Hong Kong, Singapore and Mexico City. He is a graduate of Jochi University in Tokyo, and The American Institute for Foreign Trade (in 1953), now Thunderbird School of Global Management, in Glendale, Arizona, USA. De Mente wrote the first ever books on the Japanese way of doing business (Japanese Etiquette and Ethics in Business in 1959 and How to Do Business in Japan in 1962), and was the first to introduce the now commonly used Japanese terms wa, nemawashi, kaizen, tatemae-honne, shibui, sabi and wabi to the outside business world! His 70-plus other books run the gamut from language learning to the night-time pink trades in Japan, the role of bars, cabarets and geisha houses in business, the sensual nature of Oriental cultures, male-female relations, and understanding and coping with the Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Mexican mindset in business and social situations. His books on Arizona include Cultural Code Words of the Hopi People and Cultural Code Words of the Navajo People...which use key linguistic terms that are pregnant with meanings as gateways to revealing their history and culture.
