This three volume set is edited and authored by the world-renowned authorities in this rapidly expanding field of psychology. It is absolutely comprehensive, thoroughly revised, and accurately reflects all of the changes in the field itself. Each chapter is followed by extensive references, making this series the most comprehensive reference and bibliography on cross-cultural psychology available today.

This second edition of this best-selling three volume series incorporates the views of editors and authors from a variety of nations, cultures, traditions, and theoretical perspectives, and introduces material in a number of areas not covered in the previous edition. The second volume in the set, Basic Processes and Human Development summarizes research in the areas of basic processes and developmental psychology as reported in the previous edition, but also introduces new perspectives on psychological development, including a more dynamic, constructivist, and socio-historical approach. New contributions include an exploration of the "developmental niche" concept, the idea of co-construction of identity by developing individuals and other members of their culture, and the continuity of culture-individual co-construction across adulthood and the life span. The remainder of the volume examines specific aspects of development in a cross-cultural context, including a new chapter on "everyday cognition" and a new theoretical paradigm for the development of moral judgment. Other topics covered in this volume include perception and aesthetics, emotion, language acquisition, socialization and the development of identity, and education and literacy.
