Historically the psychological study of Chinese people has been dominated by theories, data, and practitioners from the West, but this handbook signals a coming of age for the field. It covers societies as diverse as Singapore, the People's Republic of China, and Taiwan, ranging from abstract basic psychology to more concrete applications such as the attributes of Chinese consumers. Prominent scholars in varied areas of psychological research, from language acquisition to psychotherapy, provide insights into universal and specifically Chinese values and human behavior, as well as analyses of the way modernity impinges on the Chinese. These findings make this book a stepping stone towards a more dynamic and comprehensive psychology of the Chinese people for China scholars, social scientists, psychologists, and human resource specialists.
