Publisher Comments:

The dynamic author team of Shiraev and Levy provide a comprehensive review of theories and research in cross-cultural psychology within a critical thinking framework for examining, analyzing, and evaluating psychological data.

 

This text introduces the field of cross-cultural psychology, discusses basic methodology for cross-cultural research, and explores the fields of sensation and perception, consciousness, intelligence, human development, emotion, motivation, social perception and interaction, and psychological disorders from a cross-cultural perspective.

 

Features:

  • A critical thinking framework, including “Critical Thinking” boxes and tables, provide practice in developing learning skills.
  • More than thirty high-interest activities and exercises provide students ample opportunity for active learning and enhanced comprehension. These activities and exercises are designed to serve as class discussion starters, demonstrations, points for debate, individual or group assignments, term papers, or oral assignments.
  • “A Case in Point” sections review and illustrate controversial issues, display cases and research findings, and introduce various opinions about human behavior in different cultural contexts.
  • “Cross-Cultural Sensitivity” boxes in every chapter underscore the importance of empathy in interpersonal communication.
  • Relevant quotations from a wide range of sources provide divergent points of view, pique readers' interest, and inspire critical thinking.
