The increasingly globalized society in which we live is causing significant shifts in social, linguistic, and religious differences, which have the potential to increase misunderstandings in numerous cultural contexts. The second edition of Psychology and Culture: Thinking, Feeling and Behaving in a Global Context explores this shifting cultural landscape by examining the cultural dimensions of psychology and its application to everyday settings and exploring how thinking and behavior are influenced by sociocultural contexts.

The book covers the basis of culture, research in psychology and culture, identity, human development, intercultural interactions, and basic psychological processes. Vaughn explores a broader definition of culture which includes various social dimensions and provides practical models to improve intercultural relations, intercultural communication, and cultural competency. The new edition has been updated to include coverage of hot topics such as immigration, ethnic identity, globalization, nationalism, and terrorism, as well as citations of the latest statistics and reports.

Written in a reader-friendly style, the text covers a broad range of topics with numerous examples across cultures to make the content come to life. This is essential reading for students and academics in psychology, cultural studies and related disciplines, as well as anyone interested in culturally related topics and issues.
