CULTURE AND PSYCHOLOGY, 5E illustrates why and how psychologists should account for cultural factors in their efforts to explain and understand behavior. The authors’ cross-cultural framework gives students the tools necessary for evaluating psychology from a cultural perspective, while the inclusion of the most current research highlights the relationship between culture and psychology. In addition, the text encourages students to question traditionally held beliefs and theories as and their relevance to different cultural groups today.
