Description:

Matsumoto's book is designed to help students appreciate how cultural factors moderate psychological processes and how the viewpoint of one's own culture can distort one's interpretation of the behavior of people from other cultures. At the same time, the book stresses thata behavioral phenomena are characterized by both cross-cultural similarities and differences. Students will thoroughly examine the cultural similarities and differences in psychology, communicaation, work, health, and more. Culture and Modern Life parallels Weiten and Lloyd's PSYCHOLOGY APPLIED TO MODERN LIFE and is available to students in a discount bundle.
