BOOK EXCERPT:

The goal of cultural psychology is to explain the ways in which human cultural constructions -- for example, rituals, stereotypes, and meanings -- organize and direct human acting, feeling, and thinking in different social contexts. A rapidly growing, international field of scholarship, cultural psychology is ready for an interdisciplinary, primary resource. Linking psychology, anthropology, sociology, archaeology, and history, The Oxford Handbook of Culture and Psychology is the quintessential volume that unites the variable perspectives from these disciplines. Comprised of over fifty contributed chapters, this book provides a necessary, comprehensive overview of contemporary cultural psychology. Bridging psychological, sociological, and anthropological perspectives, one will find in this handbook: - A concise history of psychology that includes valuable resources for innovation in psychology in general and cultural psychology in particular - Interdisciplinary chapters including insights into cultural anthropology, cross-cultural psychology, culture and conceptions of the self, and semiotics and cultural connections - Close, conceptual links with contemporary biological sciences, especially developmental biology, and with other social sciences - A section detailing potential methodological innovations for cultural psychology By comparing cultures and the (often differing) human psychological functions occuring within them, The Oxford Handbook of Culture and Psychology is the ideal resource for making sense of complex and varied human phenomena.

BOOK EXCERPT:

This book offers an engaging introduction to cultural and cross-cultural psychology and offers an interdisciplinary approach to the key research theories and controversies that impact on human behaviour in a global context. How is human behavior and experience intertwined with culture? From this starting point, this second edition of Cultural Issues in Psychology explores the role of culture in relation to mainstream and critical perspectives of our discipline. Beginning with an examination of culture itself, as well as related concepts such as ethnicity, race and nation, it goes on to trace historical developments in the role of culture in psychology. Including a new chapter on migration, and additional coverage of indigenous psychologies, ethnographic research methods, and cosmopolitanism, the new edition reflects the latest developments in this global discipline. Also featuring up-to-date research examples and revision exercises, the book reviews and explains classic and contemporary approaches to cultural issues relating to social, cognitive, developmental and health psychology. Also including chapters on culture and lifespan, and culture and psychopathology, this is the essential entry-level text on cultural and cross-cultural psychology for students taking psychology and related courses.
