More than 3500 bibliographic citations are included, some 1800 of which are abstracted.

An original compilation of diverse sources on Chinese patterns of thinking and behavior, this comprehensive reference work is addressed primarily to social scientists, psychologists, psychiatrists, and mental health professionals. More than 3500 bibliographic citations are included, some 1800 of which are abstracted. Materials were selected from a painstaking search of the literature in psychology, psychiatric, and related disciplines and cover primarily Chinese and English-language sources, although some relevant publications in other languages are also cited. By providing easy access to material often scattered in books, monographs, and periodicals addressed to different audiences, this volume performs a major service for students and scholars involved in cross-cultural or Chinese studies.

The volume begins with an introductory chapter that presents quantitative data on publication trends and offers a qualitative evaluation of the literature. The studies that follow are divided into 13 chapters largely based on the American Psychological Association content classifications. Within chapters citations are arranged alphabetically by author. Items from non-English sources have been translated into English, while many English abstracts of Chinese publications were extensively edited or rewritten. In addition, an introduction and introductory notes to each chapter place the citations in context. As author index and an extensive subject index provide cross-referencing and aid in literature searches. An invaluable acquisition for any library with a Chinese studies or psychology collection, this volume will both introduce readers to the Chinese psychological literature and facilitate their access to this important body of work.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Comprehensive coverage of the literature, mostly in Chinese or English, up to 1986. (The literature search was complemented by a search through DIALOG). Addressed primarily to social scientists, psychologists, psychiatrists, and mental health professionals who have a special interest in cross-cultural issues in general or Chinese people, society, and culture in particular. Of interest also to sinologists. A very useful source of information which will eliminate for researchers the laborious task of an initial library search for materials wanted. Annotation c.
