Hi Brigitte,

I think the ISBN# for the latest edition of the book is 1558686169.

The last time I checked http://www.powells.com had Culture Shock Czech Republic (2001 edition) in stock... they are a bookstore in Portland, Oregon USA but do sell online. Good luck getting a copy...

Cheers for that Jeff. I just looked inside the cover of my copy and it says 1997 as the latest. I only got the book in the past 6 months or so, so it is possible there is a later edition!

Is the ISBN number the same internationally, wherever you buy it? I think it stands for International Book Standard Numbers or similar, I 'm pretty certain the I is correct. In that case the number probably would be the same internationally, therefore a more current edition is around, hence a different number. (above post, 2001!)

Yes, it's the same internationally. ISBN stands for "International Standard Book Number". According to isbn.org, 159 countries and territories are officially ISBN members.

Wonder why my outlet had an earlier edition out... Unless updated versions are only available in certain countries. Apparently the publishers are a London company, according to the inside cover - but possibly this could just be their London office. If the publishers have an office in the UK, I'm surprised the newest edition isn't on the shelves.

Wonder what the updated differences are! Wink

Another good book, which I totally enjoyed, and would recommend to anyone studying the Czech culture or going to visit, is "Pink Tanks and Velvey Hangovers". This was a great book. I enjoyed it because I had been to nearly all of the places talked about in the book.

Yeah,
The culture shock book was really helpful for my understanding of the Czech Republic. It's especially good if you're going to Prague because the author lived there.
