The second edition of this informative text still remains dedicated to the study of social pyschology from a cross-cultural perspective, but it has been revised and expanded to make it more accessible for advanced courses in cross-cultural social psychology, as well as supplementing first year introductory social psychology courses. Subjects which are new or have been expanded are organizational behaviour, indigenous psychologies and contributions, cross-cultural contact, personality, health and migration. Starting with the well-known classic studies, they show how the validity of empirical findings can be usefully extended, and they draw from a wide range of theories and research reported by social psychologists in many countries from around the world.

The complexion of the world is changing. As the international community becomes more mobile, there are more interracial couples, larger expatriate populations, and a variety of languages and cultures in every country in the world. These new demographics do not simply require understanding, tolerance, and a foreign language dictionary, but an education in communication and coexistence. As people learn to live, love, and work in these new cross-cultural environments, social psychologists work to assess how cultural differences can lead to a host of new interrelational complexities,
This new and substantially enlarged edition starts by reviewing the degree to which research in the areas of social psychology and cross-cultural psychology has been restricted to relatively few nations. The key concept of culture is then examined, leading to contemporary formulations of how we may best understand culture and cultural difference. Using this framework, the authors next consider to what extent universals have been identified in studies of, for instance, gender, emotion, personality, aggression, and organizational structures. Attention is also given to the development of indigenous schools of psychology in particular regions of the world. Social psychologists, organizational psychologists, behavioral therapists, cross-cultural psychologists, analysts, and enthusiasts.
