ROCHESTER, N.Y. - eMusicWire -- Toward Cultural Intelligence contains the personal reflections and ground-breaking ideas of Dr. Garfield Vernon, a Washington, D.C.-based author, administrator, researcher, speaker, world traveler, and the recipient of many professional and academic awards.

His book, Toward Cultural Intelligence has been already been hailed as  "a scholarly masterpiece and a literary odyssey" by readers, and celebrated for introducing exciting new concepts into the field of peace studies and cultural studies such as Cultural Shadows, Cultural Psychotherapy, and Existential Multiculturalism.

Dr. Peter Lownds (Co-Founder of the Paulo Freire Institute, UCLA) has called Toward Cultural Intelligence "...a brilliant, articulate, compassionate guide on how to achieve and maintain one's cultural competence on a planet transformed by technology... Like his countryman Bob Marley, he [Vernon] combats despair with spiritual illumination and existential spark."

A truly seminal volume, Toward Cultural Intelligence lays the groundwork for expansive research into radical new approaches toward understanding and achieving world peace, even while providing practical insight into improving cultural competence in areas ranging from international diplomacy to enhanced corporate efficiency. Observes Kaleidoscope CEO James Amoah, "Cultural intelligence, in broad terms, may well be the key to our survival as a species. Dr. Vernon is to be commended for enhancing our grasp of its nature and possibilities, and taking our understanding further."

Toward Cultural Intelligence traces the journey of a man of peace and a student of culture from his beginnings in the Caribbean to his experiences as a world traveler and international speaker and educator to his days in the United Nations. It shows vividly how those experiences have shaped his powerful and innovative reflections on our present cultural situation, and how a deeper awareness of our new digital environment and the application of psychotherapeutic techniques and existential perspectives may enhance world peace and provide fresh new solutions to the challenges facing the global community today.
