Summary: A first of its kind, this innovative supplementary text offers students the most current findings on sociocultural issues in social psychology. Presented with a multicultural perspective, this collection of readings complements a basic textbook with new research and concepts about culture, ethnic minorities, and established principles as they relate to standard topics of social psychology. The readings in this book are derived from primary sources written by renowned more authors, and reflect the field's diverse methods for conducting research. Context-setting introductions and critical thinking questions encourage students to carefully consider each topic's applications--and implications--both in and out of the classroom.

Focuses on a broad spectrum of cultural and ethnic populations, taking into account the experiences of: African-Americans, Latino/Hispanic-Americans, Asian-Americans, and Native Americans as well as the traditionally covered White, middle-class Americans. Several cultures outside the United States: Brazil, China, India, Iraq, Japan, Korea, and others.

Presents 19 primary source articles by leading scholars representing cutting-edge research on multicultural issues. The articles: Were independently evaluated by a panel of undergraduates for their interest, readability, and comprehensibility.
Include both recent empirical studies and conceptual papers that review a body of literature. Exposes students to outstanding examples of diverse research methods: Includes both experimental and correlational designs-- various methods of data collection include questionnaires, interviews, telephone surveys, and daily interaction diaries. Begins with a chapter explaining the basic ingredients in a sociocultural perspective, offering advice about how to read a research report in psychology, and introducing basic statistical terms that students may find unfamiliar.

Includes a Guide to Sociocultural Resources in Social Psychology -- with information about relevant journals, recent books, films, videos, fiction, and first-person accounts that can enrich an understanding of culture.

Provides an introduction for each article, indicating how the article uses a sociocultural perspective.

Contains critical-thinking and discussion questions for each article that encourage students to examine the arguments, evidence, and methods presented, and to consider applications of the research to their own lives; and to courses they may be taking in psychology.
