From the Publisher"This book lays out a brilliant process model of culture. It shows how culturally shared knowledge is used to structure social transactions and it lays the groundwork for a new science of cultural processes. It's an outstanding contribution to psychology."
- Carol Dweck, Stanford University
"This is an up-to-date statement of one of the most productive and innovative research groups in culture and psychology. Treating culture as process, they spell out the underlying metatheory of culture, describe their most recent research findings, theorize about cultural representations and functions, and apply this framework to pressing contemporary research questions, such as cultural differences in self-enhancement, subjective well-being, work teams, and conflict resolution, as well as intercultural processes of negation and communication. This volume is simultaneously a cogent argument for a dynamic perspective on culture, a searching analysis of cultural dynamics, and an invaluable foundation from which to launch further inquiries into cultural changes in the globalized world."
- Yoshi Kashima, The University of Melbourne
"An overview of the cutting edge. This wide-ranging and well-integrated volume makes a compelling case for a dynamic, processual approach. Anyone interested in cultural determinants of thoughts and behavior should turn to this book to learn of the exciting recent developments in cultural psychology."
- Michael Morris, Columbia University
