In The Cross-Cultural Challenge to Social Psychology a group of distinguished psychologists considers what the cross-cultural approach has to offer the discipline of social psychology.
The book begins with an assessment of the cross-cultural position, its faults and some requirements for broader acceptance. In the second section, cross-culturalists present the case for the cross-cultural approach in a broad, theoretical and synoptic presentation.
The next section consists of integrated, empirical summaries of cross-cultural research in selected areas by practitioners in the vanguard of work in that area. Finally, some of the social psychologists indicate how their original thinking has changed in the light of the presentations of the cross-culturalists.
With the goal to provoke academic controversy and encourage fruitful exchange, this volume is important to both students and professionals in the areas of social and cross-cultural psychology.
