"...Three internationally known psychologists have combined their skills to write this most impressive book that provides an excellent account of culture shock.' Harry Triadis, Professor Emeritus of Psychology, University of Illinois 'In a world where there are millions of tourists, sojourners, expatriates, immigrants and refugees, it is high time for psychology to pay attention to the culture shock that these individuals are experiencing. Three internationally known psychologists have combined their skills to write this most impressive book that provides an excellent account of culture shock.' - Harry Triadis, Professor Emeritus of Psychology, University of Illinois 'This updated edition improves on what was already a superbly readable and much-needed review of psychological work about cross-cultural encounters,,, brings together a plethora of different studies and perspectives into a coherent whole... no mean feat!' - Marco Cinnirella, Royal Holloway, University of London"
