Summary

This market-leading text puts psychological theories and concepts into a cross-cultural framework that invites you to discover, question, and ultimately, understand the relationship between culture and psychology. Along the way, you'll explore topics like changing gender roles, sexuality, self-esteem, aggression, personality, and mate selection. It all adds up to a text that will leave you with a deeper, more complex understanding of the nature of culture, its relationship to psychological processes, and the differences and similarities between cultures in our increasingly globalized world.
