About the Product

Cultural psychology through a global lens The most contemporary and relevant introduction to the field, Cultural Psychology, Fourth Edition, is unmatched in both its presentation of current, global experimental research and its focus on helping students to think like cultural psychologists.


  • A focus on experimental research helps students to think like cultural psychologists Cultural Psychology presents an unparalleled array of experimental research, including a wealth of current findings based upon actual behavioral experiments, economic games, and studies employing neuroscience methods. Many of the concepts in the text are explained by walking students through detailed examples of classic experiments in the field—demonstrating exactly how the studies are conducted—and challenging them to think about how psychologists obtain answers to their research questions.
