The Encyclopedia of Cross-Cultural Psychology sets the standard as a scholarly, authoritative, and the most comprehensive reference in the field of cultural and cross-cultural psychology. It is a historic first in integrating domestic and international concepts of multiculturalism from indigenous to national and global perspectives in psychology. The encyclopedias are destined to become the primary research source for students and scholars seeking to expand their insights into cultural psychology, and to conduct conceptual and empirical research in the field.
