The Oxford Handbook of Multicultural Identity, editors bring together a distinguished and impressive set of 47 authors in 22 chapters to address focal aspects of multicultural identity and experience. Benet-Martínez and Hong's volume brings together primarily social psychological perspectives, with additional contributions from counseling psychology, developmental psychology, communication, education, marketing, organizational behavior, and speech-language communication. Overall, the Handbook is a very useful and much-needed resource. It provides, in one place, access to thorough and thoughtful reviews of key topics in the psychology of multiculturalism, serving as a one-stop location for overviews of notable current perspectives, research programs, and theoretical frameworks. Given its comprehensive coverage and its singular configuration, Benet-Martínez and Hong's contribution fills a unique gap in the field and will most likely be a much-used resource. (PsycCRITIQUES)
Descripción del producto
Despite the prevalence of multicultural identity and experiences, until the publication of this volume, there has not yet been a comprehensive review of scholarly research on the psychological underpinning of multiculturalism. The Oxford Handbook of Multicultural Identity fills this void. It reviews cutting-edge empirical and theoretical work on the psychology of multicultural identities and experiences. As a whole, the volume addresses some important basic issues, such as measurement of multicultural identity, links between multilingualism and multiculturalism, the social psychology of multiculturalism and globalization, as well as applied issues such as multiculturalism in counseling, education, policy, marketing and organizational science, to mention a few.
This handbook will be useful for students, researchers, and teachers in cultural, social, personality, developmental, acculturation, and ethnic psychology. It can also be used as a source book in advanced undergraduate and graduate courses on identity and multiculturalism, and a reference for applied psychologists and researchers in the domains of education, management, and marketing.
