"This second volume is a worthy follow-up to the first and establishes Advances in Culture and Psychology as an important series for scholars in our field. The review articles serve as capstones for fascinating lines of work by leading scholars. The collection of articles here highlights the theoretical and methodological pluralism at the heart of psychological approaches to the study of culture, and cultural approaches to the study of persons and situations." -- Dov Cohen, Professor of Psychology, and Affiliated Faculty of the Center for East Asian and Pacific Studies, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign "A serious and wide-ranging exploration of the exciting frontiers where culture interacts with psychology. Leading scholars in the field provide us with enlightening insights as they describe their programs of research, on topics ranging from brain function to color cognition, and from intelligence to personality. This is a cutting-edge volume that will, no doubt, spark increasing dialogue and interest in the field of Cultural Psychology as it moves from the peripheral to the central." -- Frederick Leong, Director, Consortium for Multicultual Psychology Research, Michigan State University "The second volume of the Advances in Culture and Psychology series fulfills again the promise of the editors to 'develop an intellectual home for culture and psychology research programs.' This volume contributes substantially to the establishment of this important series as a major source of information for understanding the overarching role of culture for human psychology. Although psychology is and always has been cultural, the importance of culture and psychology research programs in mainstream psychology is still underappreciated. The exciting chapters of this new edition span the bow from neurophysiology to social change, demonstrating that it is time for a paradigm shift in psychology from a universalist view to a contextual understanding of all psychological phenomena." -- Heidi Keller, Professor of Psychology, Department of Human Sciences, University of Osnabrueck, Germany "The editors have done a thorough job of compiling articles from an array of subfields, each answering questions concerning the degree to which culture may be affecting diverse psychological phenomena. It is clear that the current series has taken into account a wide array of fields that could benefit from considering culture as a potential variable when one is predicting behavior. Ultimately, the series paints an all-encompassing picture of where the field of cultural psychology stands with regard to theory and methodology, and would be ideal for anyone, either scholar or student, interested in how culture interacts with well-studied psychological phenomena." -Jeanette Altarriba, Crystal J. Robinson, PsycCRITIQUESFrom the Publisher:
With applications throughout the social sciences, culture and psychology is a rapidly growing field that has experienced a surge in publications over the last decade. From this proliferation of books, chapters, and journal articles, exciting developments have emerged in the relationship of culture to cognitive processes, human development, psychopathology, social behavior, organizational behavior, neuroscience, language, marketing, and other topics. In recognition of this exponential growth, Advances in Culture and Psychology is the first annual series to offer state-of-the-art reviews of scholarly research in the growing field of culture and psychology.
The Advances in Culture and Psychology series is:
* Developing an intellectual home for culture and psychology research programs
* Fostering bridges and connections among cultural scholars from across the discipline
* Creating a premier outlet for culture and psychology research
* Publishing articles that reflect the theoretical, methodological, and epistemological diversity in the study of culture and psychology
* Enhancing the collective identity of the culture and psychology field
Comprising chapters from internationally renowned culture scholars and representing diversity in the theory and study of culture within psychology, Advances in Culture and Psychology is an ideal resource for research programs and academics throughout the psychology community.
