This important volume takes the cultural embeddedness of behaviour as its central theme. This theme is elaborated in a variety of cultural contexts including India, China and Mexico. Besides theoretical issues, the contributors cover a wide range of important topics in the areas of developmental psychology, community mental health, the psychology of language, organizational behaviour, and school psychology.

Specific chapters are devoted to a comparative understanding of human behaviour, child development, family patterns, personality, leadership and managerial practice, and the role of culture in community interventions.
