Overview

This field-leading book puts psychological theories and concepts into a cross-cultural framework that invites readers to discover, question, and ultimately, understand the relationship between culture and psychology through exploration of topics like changing gender roles, sexuality, self-esteem, aggression, personality, and mate selection. It all adds up to a book that will leave readers with a deeper, more complex understanding of the nature of culture, its relationship to psychological processes, and the differences and similarities between cultures in the increasingly globalized world.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Ganie DeHart, SUNY Genesco: "I found it to be the best of the various cross-cultural textbooks I've used over the years. I have been teaching this course for 16 years, and I've probably used every undergraduate cross-cultural textbook that has come out during that time."

Joy Stratton, CSU Northridge: "It addresses all aspects of psychology instead of focusing on Abnormal Behavior or Treatments or focusing on just one definition of culture (e.g. race, gender)."

Nan Sussman, College of Staten Island: "Matsumoto and Juang is currently the most comprehensive and student-friendly textbook on the topic of culture and psychology."
