9780333751046: Political Psychology: Cultural and Crosscultural Foundations

Relationships of culture and political psychology shape a wide range of important contemporary political issues. The distinguished contributors to this book make use of diverse theories of psychology, informed by a broadly comparable understanding of the nature of culture. The book is an important landmark in developing the field of political psychology, developing insights from psychological anthropologists, political scientists and crosscultural psychologists. Critical contemporary social, political and cultural issues of ethnic and crosscultural conflict around the world are crying out for theories making use of the powerful lens of culture along with other refractory frameworks.

Review:

For those familiar with the field the book affords a valuable overview. For those who are new to the field it is an excellent introduction. Recommended for upper-division undergraduates and above.
CHOICE

Political Psychology offers the reader a very valuable overview of the multi-faceted field of political psychology as it is currently practiced. It covers a wide spectrum of areas from the public to the private where a political psychology approach can vastly enhance our understanding of human behaviors. The well-known contributors from a variety of fields and theoretical orientations discuss the potentials as well as the limitations of this new field. The volume should prove valuable both for the novice unfamiliar with the field and those familiar with it but anxious to broaden their perspective.
Roberta S. Sigel
Professor (Emerita), Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey

This book clearly and boldly maps out the realm of political psychology--its roots, its current scope, and its present and future contributions to understanding and resolving political problems. The essays are persuasive because the authors are leading political psychologists who write movingly about their life's work...an excellent, multi-faceted scholarly guide that provides the contexts, perspectives, and examples that students of political psychology need.
Doris Graber
Professor of Political Science, University of Illinois at Chicago

This volume contains essays by several of the leading figures in the development of the transdiscipline of political psychology. Together they paint a fascinating portrait of the intellectual crosscurrents from anthropology, sociology, and political theory that have shaped the way in which political scientists and psychologists have combined forces to analyze the exercise of power in human affairs from a psychological perspective....This book is indispensable for gaining a sophisticated appreciation of the past and future research agendas in this area of inquiry.
Stephen G. Walker
Professor of Political Science, Arizona State University

The scope, perspicuity, and maturity of these chapters make this book absolutely essential reading for all those with a serious interest in the field.
Jim Sidanius
Professor of Psychology, University of California at Los Angeles
