Cross-Cultural Psychology is a comprehensive overview of cross-cultural studies in a number of substantive areas--psychological development, social behavior, personality, cognition, and perception--and covers theory and applications to acculturation, work, communication, health, and national development. Cast within an ecological and cultural framework, it views the development and display of human behavior as the outcome of both ecological and socio-political influences, and it adopts a "universalistic" position with respect to the range of similarities and differences in human behavior across cultures. Basic psychological processes are assumed to be species-wide, shared human characteristics, but culture plays variations on these underlying similarities.
