Book Description
Although the Chinese people constitute more than a quarter of the world's population, this book is the first to summarize and integrate the wealth of data available (both in Chinese and English) on their psychological functioning. The well-known contributors emphasize prime areas of research, the theoretical models used to integrate these findings, and problems for future investigation. They provide a cross-cultural perspective on the data, covering topics such as socialization, perception, cognition, personality, psychopathology, social behavior, and organization. Full of interesting comparisons, facts, and insights, the work will appeal to psychologists and psychiatrists, cultural anthropologists, sociologists, and anyone interested in Chinese culture.
