Further Information

The Publisher

The Culture Smart! series is published by Kuperard, an independent, London-based publishing house. The series was launched in 2003 with the release of the first three country guides. Today, the series has grown to nearly 100 titles - and it is expanding!


A growing demand by corporate customers and organizations for further cross-cultural training prompted the formation of CultureSmart!Consulting. Our team of lead consultants create and deliver tailor-made seminars and consultancy programs for corporate and public sector organisations who face cross-cultural and diversity issues. They provide both pre-assignment and post-assignment programs, as well as on-going counselling.


Kuperard Publishers & Distributors, owned by Bravo Ltd, have been providing services for the sale, marketing and distribution of books in the UK since 1985 for a number of international publishing houses, including imprints of Penguin Random House (US), Harper Collins (US) and Simon & Shuster (US) to name a few. Genres of interest include travel, language, religion, philosophy, education and classical literature.

Our Authors

Culture Smart! authors are hand-picked both for their deep knowledge of and familiarity with the culture of a particular country, and for their ability to see things from the first-time visitor's point of view. Hailing from a range of backgrounds, they have lived abroad in different capacities—many as journalists, diplomats, translators or academics.

Above all, each author has a passion for the country and its people. It is this that inspires them to share their experiences and to introduce others to the delights, quirks, and nuances of a culture that they appreciate and respect.

We are always looking to expand our list of countries. If you are somebody with a valuable vantage point, have experience living in a foreign culture and are interested in authoring a country guide, we would be happy to hear from you.
