Overview

This concise, unique book challenges many of the �truths� presented in mainstream, introductory treatments of psychology. Matsumoto, extracting some of the most important and compelling findings in the cross-cultural literature, goes beyond the ordinary to reveal how culture has an impact on society, behavior, and expression. His review of the cross-cultural research literature in nine popular areas of psychology (perception, cognition, developmental psychology, language and language acquisition, cognitive development and intelligence, emotion, abnormal psychology, social psychology, and the self) provides readers with a more detailed discussion of the issues than is usually possible in other introductory books, keeping the material from becoming superficial or tokenistic. Readers are exposed to psychology from around the world and are provided options from which they can choose the perspective on psychology and human behavior that is right for them.
