First published in 2000. Routledge is an imprint of Taylor & Francis, an informa company.
"This is a very important book. Its message is that psychology gives inadequate attention to culture, especially macroculture. Ratner's critiques of different approaches to psychology are excellent. This is a great book."
"The book is very timely in the contemporary context of developing cultural psychology…engaging, substantive, and at times provocative."
—Jaan Valsiner, Ph.D.
"This book makes a unique contribution …by drawing out the important connections between culture, psychology, and power…appropriate for undergraduate and graduate courses in cultural psychology …Scholars in cultural psychology…developmental psychology…anthropology, sociology, and even public policy would benefit from reading this book."
—Victoria Plaut, Ph.D.
College of the Holy Cross
"A timely and urgently needed contribution to the field of psychology…a unified, coherent text on cultural psychology."
