This second edition of the best selling textbook Cross-Cultural Psychology has been substantially revised to provide the student with the most comprehensive overview of cross-cultural psychology available in one volume. The team of internationally acclaimed authors have included the most up-to-date research in the field and written two new chapters on language and on emotion. Within a universalistic framework the book emphasises not only research on basic processes and theory, but also methodology and applications of cross-cultural psychology with respect to acculturation, organisational processes, communication, health and national development. The new format of the book is designed to make it even more accessible and reader-friendly and includes chapter outlines, chapter summaries, further reading and a glossary of key terms.
