Table of Contents
"At long last, we have a book that describes the intersections between culture and socioemotional development! Chen and Rubin bring together an impressive array of scholars who have dedicated their careers to understanding the ways that emotions, self-regulation, attachment, ethnic identity, and peer relationships, among many topics, are shaped by the cultural context in which they develop. The chapters are written in a very accessible manner, making the book appropriate for both introductory and advanced psychology courses. I strongly and enthusiastically recommend this book for any student, scholar, or professional who is interested in children and adolescents."--Niobe Way, EdD, Department of Applied Psychology, New York University; President, Society for Research on Adolescence
"This volume signals a new stage in our thinking about the role of culture in socioemotional development. As the distinguished contributors demonstrate, the study of culture has moved from description to process, from static to dynamic, and from a single- to a multilevel enterprise. Scholars and students across a range of disciplines will find the volume's theoretical, applied, and policy insights of great value. Highly recommended."--Ross D. Parke, PhD, Distinguished Professor of Psychology, Emeritus, University of California, Riverside
"This book is a major step toward the transformation of developmental psychology into a comparative science of human development. Leading developmental psychologists point to the need for cross-cultural research on child development, conceptualize the roles of culture and cultural context in socioemotional development, and present findings from many parts of the world."--Robert A. LeVine, PhD, Roy Edward Larsen Professor of Education and Human Development, Emeritus, Harvard University
"Developmental psychology comes of age in this volume. The book presents multicultural data collected with care by able scientists. Chapters are integrative, conceptually sophisticated, and grounded in evolutionary and attachment theory. A truly state-of-the-art work."--Michael Harris Bond, PhD, Chair Professor of Psychology, Hong Kong Polytechnic University, China
"This timely and needed contribution provides an inspiring, innovative exploration of major areas of socioemotional development across divergent cultures. Instructors and researchers will find the book highly informative and invaluable. Chen, Rubin, and the contributing authors are leading scholars, and this book is a testament to their contributions to the field."--Abraham Sagi-Schwartz, PhD, Department of Psychology and Director, Center for the Study of Child Development, University of Haifa, Israel
