Using today's most relevant theory and the latest research, this edition presents psychological theories and concepts within a culturally rich framework that invites you to discover, question, challenge and, ultimately, understand the association between culture and psychology. You explore pertinent topics, such as changing gender roles, sexuality, health, aggression, personality and mate selection, as you examine the differences and similarities among cultures in today's increasingly globalized world. Updated content and refined learning features help you gain a deeper, more complex understanding of the nature of culture and its connection to key psychological processes.
