About the Authors
  • Cross-cultural psychology has come of age as a scientific discipline, but how has it developed? The field has moved from exploratory studies, in which researchers were mainly interested in finding differences in psychological functioning without any clear expectation, to detailed hypothesis tests of theories of cross-cultural differences. This book takes stock of the large number of empirical studies conducted over the last decades to evaluate the current state of the field. Specialists from various domains provide an overview of their area, linking it to the fundamental questions of cross-cultural psychology such as how individuals and their cultures are linked, how the link evolves during development, and what the methodological challenges of the field are. This book will appeal to academic researchers and post-graduates interested in cross-cultural research.

    • An introductory chapter provides an overview of the fundamental questions at the heart of the field of cross-cultural psychology
    • Subsequent chapters relate models and findings in specific domains of cross-cultural psychology to the fundamental questions outlined in the introduction, linking perspectives from many fields to the same set of questions
    • Devotes a complete section to the relationship between individuals and cultures, asking whether we have adequate models to understand how individual functioning and cultural factors are interrelated
