About the Author

Edited by Xinyin Chen, PhD, Applied Psychology and Human Development Division, Graduate School of Education, University of Pennsylvania, USA and Kenneth H. Rubin, PhD, Center for Children, Relationships, and Culture, University of Maryland, USA


"This volume signals a new stage in our thinking about the role of culture in socioemotional development. As the distinguished contributors demonstrate, the study of culture has moved from description to process, from static to dynamic, and from a single- to a multilevel enterprise. Scholars and students across a range of disciplines will find the volume's theoretical, applied, and policy insights of great value. Highly recommended." - Ross D. Parke, Distinguished Professor of Psychology, Emeritus, University of California, Riverside, USA "At long last, we have a book that describes the intersections between culture and socioemotional development! Chen and Rubin bring together an impressive array of scholars who have dedicated their careers to understanding the ways that emotions, self-regulation, attachment, ethnic identity, and peer relationships, among many topics, are shaped by the cultural context in which they develop. The chapters are written in a very accessible manner, making the book appropriate for both introductory and advanced psychology courses. I strongly and enthusiastically recommend this book for any student, scholar, or professional who is interested in children and adolescents." - Niobe Way, Department of Applied Psychology, New York University, USA, and President, Society for Research on Adolescence, USA
