13565. Cultural Differences in Social Distance: Arabs and Americans.
Drawing on Edward Hall's 1959 theory of social relations based on proxemics (the structure of personal space), this paper explores the differences between the non-verbal and social behaviors of Arabs and Americans, to see how Hall's theory has faired over the quarter-century in which relations between the two groups have greatly increased. 6 pages, 10 footnotes, 9 bibliographic sources.
