Reviews

'Few psychology books capture the reader through their table of contents like this one. The book contrasts dominant ideas from Eastern and Western psychology and, in doing so, challanges one's own assumptions...perhaps the book's greatest strength is the holistic focus on life as a lived experience, which also makes it fun to read.' - The Psychologist 'Even if the examples mainly describe the differences between the Indian and western ways of thinking they do help in understanding cultural differences in general...One can recommend Cross-cultural Psychology for people from many different fields. It is not just professionals of psychology or social psychology who need to understand these differences' Psykologia 'Few psychology books capture the reader through their table of contents like this one.
