From author Nicholas Dima comes an enlightening book that is sure to challenge and provoke thought to its readers. Made available through Xlibris, Culture, Religion, and Geopolitics attempts to define culture and make mutual understanding easier in this era of globalization.
Having lived and worked in three different continents, Dima has experienced a variety of environments. His accumulated knowledge is shared in Culture, Religion, and Geopolitics. Although addressed to the average reader, the book also raises some delicate philosophical and religious questions and insights. “We are all the results of our parents’ physical, cultural, and spiritual environments. Our values, attitudes, and behavior are shaped by our beliefs, which in turn are molded by religion and science. At the same time, our belief system is constantly challenged by new discoveries and is influenced by our changing behavior,” shares Dima.
A special chapter compares Christianity with other religions and stresses how it influences our individual behavior and the governments’ geopolitical attitudes. After tackling such delicate issues, the book dedicates one chapter to various significant cross-cultural problems and another one to English as an international instrument of communication. The second part of the book addresses the evolution of the world through the prism of culture, religion, and technology. Several chapters deal with the most powerful countries of the current world. A chapter is also dedicated to the United States and to the American modal personality. In conclusion, some philosophical remarks address the nature and the future of our civilization.

About the Author
Nicholas Dima was born into a traditional Romanian family and brought up in Bucharest under unusually harsh conditions. Believing in freedom, he rejected from an early age the abusive regime in his country and at the age of nineteen tried to escape to the West. Yet he was caught by the border patrols and spent the next four years in prisons and labor camps. After being released, he carefully navigated his way through the system and managed to graduate from Bucharest University. In 1968, he eventually escaped and immigrated to the United States where he received a PhD from Columbia University. In the United States, he worked as a writer, reporter, and professor. After retiring, he went to Africa where he taught for several years in Ethiopia and Djibouti. And recently, he offered university courses in his native Romania. Dr. Dima has published several books, countless articles, offered numerous public lectures, and had many radio and TV appearances. His specializations are cross-cultural understanding and geopolitical trends. Two of his books reflect that specialty while Journey to Freedom offers the reader his life experience.
