In recent years, we have witnessed considerable growth in international and cross-cultural psycology, both on the theoretocal and empirical levels.

The growth has encompassed not only research in the field of psycoloy but interdisciplinary work as well.

The unique contribution of this book is to present a sampling of this new interdisciplinary research, focusing on conceptual empirical findings.

The chapterrs encompass diverse domains of psychology, including general, social, clinical, educational, and personality.

Such a broad diversity of topics highlights the richness of this new interdisciiplinary focus in international and cross-cultural psychology.
