The primary goal of this volume was to test the effectiveness Cross-Cultural Interaction Model (CCIM) in various cultural contexts and time periods. Each of the volume’s case studies successfully adapted the model to their data demonstrating the flexible nature of the CCIM. Some scholars applied the model to their data as it was originally designed, while others made substantial changes in order to adapt the model to the idiosyncrasies of their cultural context. This chapter succinctly reviews the results of each individual case study and the contributions they made to strengthen CCIM for future application. One of the most important conclusions to come from the testing of the CCIM is that this process demonstrated the analytical power of a graphic model of cultural interaction which can trigger new perspectives or the identification of overlooked aspects of a thoroughly studied cultural interaction.
