Overview

With applications throughout the social sciences, culture and psychology is a rapidly growing field that has experienced a boom in publication 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 goals for Advances in Culture and Psychology are simple:

* Develop an intellectual home for culture and psychology research programs
* Foster bridges and connections among cultural scholars from across the discipline
* Create a highly-cited volume and a premier outlet for culture and psychology research
* Publish articles that reflect the theoretical, methodological, and epistemological diversity in the study of culture and psychology
* Enhance 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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"It is wonderful to see the next generation of cross-cultural and cultural psychologists undertake a series that will include not only psychology, but also many other disciplines. Just as the Experimental Social Psychology series shaped social psychology, this new series promises to shape our understanding of the relationship between culture and psychology."
Harry C. Triandis
Professor Emeritus, University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana

"This important series presents the field of cultural and cross-cultural psychology at its best. With the increasing scientific knowledge on brain plasticity, it is no longer possible to ignore potent influences socio-cultural contexts have on human development and ensuing mental processes. With the growing volume of cross-cultural data the news of enormous diversity in the human mode of being has arrived in psychology at long last. The eight beautifully written chapters included here in the first volume of the series in combination, are breaking the ground to mark a new milestone, making a convincing case for culture as a central element in human psychology."
Shinobu Kitayama
University of Michigan

"Human diversity and cultural dynamics are pressing questions in today's globalized world in flux. After three decades of explosive growth, the field of culture and psychology now has a forum that presents a cacophony that sings the tune of culture in its breathtaking dynamic complexity. From evolutionary and social underpinnings of culture to psychological processes involving language, emotion, and attachment, from traditional research topics to recent breakthroughs in the field, the first volume of the Advances in Culture and Psychology provides fresh, diverse, and penetrating perspectives on the nexus of culture and psychology. Invigorating renewed interests, celebrating newest advances, and pointing to future directions, it is a welcome addition to the field that ensures its further growth."
Yoshihisa Kashima
University of Melbourne

"We found this book to be well-organized, accurate, and engaging. We plan to use it in many of the classes we teach and are likely to cite it in much of our research and writing in the future. We eagerly look forward to future volumes and recommend the series to everyone working in or studying psychology in the early 21st century." — Sherri McCarthy and Natalie Hess, PsycCRITIQUES
