From this proliferation of books, chapters, and journal articles, exciting developments have emerged in the relationship ofculture to cognitive processes, human development, psychopathology, social behavior, organizational behavior, neuroscience, language, marketing, and other topics. In recognition of this exponential growth, Advances in Culture and Psychology is the first annual series to offer state-of-the-artreviews of scholarly research in the growing field of culture and psychology.
