Review:

The breadth of research represented throughout these volumes speaks to one of the editors many aims?to be representative of the diversity in the field. As such, the present series is a good resource for any scholar in psychology interested in how culture may or may not affect a variety of behavioral research areas. With regard to models of behavioral differentiation, the series includes a number of theories improving on basic dichotomized and stagnant models of culture. The series paints an all-encompassing picture of where the field of cultural psychology stands with regard to theory and methodology, and would be ideal for anyone, either scholar or student, interested in how culture interacts with well-studied psychological phenomena.
