Edited by:


© 1999 | 320 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
`In this book, cross-cultural psychologists from around the world honor the discipline's founding father, Harry C Triandis. The book has become a perfect overview of the state of the art in cross-cultural psychology' - Geert Hofstede, Tilburg University, The Netherlands

Social Psychology and Cultural Context is the first survey of social psychology to integrate cross-cultural issues. The book not only utilizes several variants of the construct of subjective culture but also reflects the current state of affairs in the social domain of cross-cultural psychology. Written by world-renowned specialists, the chapters in this volume offer valuable insights to students and researchers in both cross-cultural and social psychology.
