This comprehensive, research-based text allows undergraduate psychology students to explore fundamental issues and methods that distinguish the field of ethnic psychology within mainstream psychology. Combining theory with practical examples, it examines ethnic identities, acculturation, and biculturalism, while aiming to increase readers' sensitivity, awareness, and knowledge regarding the role of ethnicity and culture in human behavior.

Key Features

  • Significant theoretical formulations (on ethnic identity, acculturation, biculturalism, etc.) are covered, offering students a foundation for examining the relationship between ethnicity and human behavior, adjustment, and social conditions
  • Vignettes at the beginning of each chapter provide practical applications of key topics, while boxes and side bars give examples of relevant research, data, and commentary
  • Chapter-ending key terms, Learn by Doing exercises, and suggested readings reinforce comprehension and retention

Intended audience

Undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in Multicultural Psychology, Psychology of Ethnic Groups, Minority Psychology, Cross Cultural Psychology and similar classes.
