The University of Wolverhampton has acquired limited copyright
of this Guide which was originally produced for the Shropshire Fire
and Rescue service by an ex student of the University.
Staff who have reviewed this document have recommended it as a
useful source of additional information on culture and
The Guide gives general and broad based information on a number
of different cultures (see Contents below).
Some points however need to be borne in mind. Firstly within the
same broad culture there may be variation and distinct regional
differences. Secondly over time culture and identity can be fluid,
certainly these are not wholly fixed and can evolve. Finally we all
exist in a number of different cultural settings, e.g. home, work,
faith, class, region, locality, peer group etc.
This enriching aspect of experience enables us to understand,
and be effective in, a wide range of social contexts. It is
therefore wise to see each individual as a dynamic meeting point of
many cultures and not to read off her/his culture in a simplistic
way from this (or any other) Guide.
Bearing in mind these points, which are reiterated in the Preface
below, we hope that you will find the Guide useful and
