Matsumoto, D. (Ed.). (2001). The handbook of culture and psychology
New York, NY: Oxford University Press.

Editorial Reviews:

�Over the past two decades, cultures impact upon human behavior and experience has moved from periphery to center stage in contemporary psychology. This volume provides a virtually encyclopedic account of this endeavor. Its contributors are among the most productive and innovative scholars in the field. Collectively, they convey a wealth of information, but also a sense of excitement that pervades this enterprise. Students looking for an introduction to this intertwining of psychology and culture, researchers attempting to disentangle it, and practitioners seeking to apply its accumulated insights will find this handbook useful for years to come.�

                         - Juris S. Draguns, Professor Emeritus of Psychology, Pennsylvania State University

 The Handbook of Culture and Psychology is an exciting and visionary look at the research agenda for the future in psychology. With a goal of developing universal theories of psychological processes, The Handbook should be a reference book for all psychologists, not just those who are interested in the impact of culture.�

                          - Dale Dinnel, Department of Psychology, Western Washington University

 �Psychologists cannot anymore overlook cultural context; this handbook makes clear why. Matsumoto has chosen competent authors who together provide a broad overview of the field of cross-cultural psychology, going well beyond social psychological approaches. In short, what can be achieved in a single volume is here.�

and University of Leuven, Belgium

 �This book is the best gift for students who want to get an updated map of cross-cultural psychology and its neighboring areas. To psychologists who are working in a particular area, this book tells what has been accomplished in other areas, and is a source of insights into what meta-theoretical and methodological innovations are to come.�
