`In this book, cross-cultural psychologists from around the world honor the discipline's founding father, Harry C Triandis. The book has become a perfect overview of the state of the art in cross-cultural psychology' - Geert Hofstede, Tilburg University, The Netherlands
Social Psychology and Cultural Context is the first survey of social psychology to integrate cross-cultural issues. The book not only utilizes several variants of the construct of subjective culture but also reflects the current state of affairs in the social domain of cross-cultural psychology. Written by world-renowned specialists, the chapters in this volume offer valuable insights to students and researchers in both cross-cultural and social psychology.
My work focuses on the description of "interpersonal structure" (i.e., the psychological dimensions along which social behavior varies), and on the modeling of the mental representation of interpersonal behavior and of the social context in which it occurs. This work has implication both for traditional social/personality psychology, and for a number of related theoretical issues (e.g., the possibility of distinguishing "universal" from culture-specific psychological processes, and the emergence over time of the dimensions along which meaning about interpersonal behavior is communicated).
