About the Authors
  • Cross-Cultural Psychology is a leading textbook offering senior undergraduate and graduate students a thorough and balanced overview of the whole field of cross-cultural psychology. The team of internationally acclaimed authors present the latest empirical research, theory, methodology and applications from around the world. They discuss all domains of behavior (including development, social behavior, personality, cognition, psycholinguistics, emotion and perception), and present the three main approaches in cross-cultural psychology (cultural, culture-comparative, and indigenous traditions) as well as applications to a number of domains (including acculturation, intercultural relations and communication, work and health). With new additions to the writing team, the third edition benefits from an even broader range of cross-cultural perspectives. Now in 2-colour, the format is even more reader-friendly and the features include chapter outlines, chapter summaries, further reading and an updated glossary of key terms. This edition also offers an accompanying website containing additional material and weblinks.

    • Outlines theories and research in all three orientations of cross-cultural psychology (cultural, culture-comparative, and indigenous traditions)
    • Chapters on all the major domains of psychological research (individual development, social behavior, personality, cognition, psycholinguistics, emotion research and perception) teach students about the multiple ways in which behavior and cultural context interact
    • Discusses empirical research, theory, methodology and applications of cross-cultural psychology, and teaches students how to link the different aspects
