Description

In recent years China has witnessed unprecedented economic growth, emerging as a powerful, influential player on the global stage. Now, more than ever, there is a great interest and need within the West to better understand the psychological and social processes that characterize the Chinese people. The Oxford Handbook of Chinese psychology is the first book of its kind - a comprehensive and commanding review of Chinese psychology, covering areas of human functioning with unparalleled sophistication and complexity. In 42 chapters, leading authorities cite and integrate both English and Chinese-language research in topic areas ranging from the socialization of children, mathematics achievement, emotion, bilingualism and Chinese styles of thinking to Chinese identity, personal relationships, leadership processes and psychopathology. With all chapters accessibly written by the leading researchers in their respective fields, the reader of this volume will learn how and why China has developed in the way it has, and how it is likely to develop. In addition, the book shows how a better understanding of a culture so different to our own can tell us so much about our own culture and sense of identity. A book of extraordinary breadth, The Oxford Handbook of Chinese psychology will become the essential sourcebook for any scholar or practitioner attempting to understand the psychological functioning of the world's largest ethnic group.

Author Biography

Michael Harris Bond completed his undergraduate training in honours psychology at the University of Toronto (1966), before venturing to Stanford University where he gained a PhD in social psychology (1970). Following a post-doctoral fellowship in experimental social innovation at Michigan State University, he travelled to Japan as his wife's dependent in 1971. While she taught English, he worked as a Research Associate at Kwansei Gakuin University, studying non-verbal behaviour and beginning his first cross-cultural studies. These continued for the next 35 years, focusing on Chinese social behaviour during his first, full-time academic position at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. He moved to the Hong Kong Polytechnic University in 2009 where he is now Chair Professor of Applied Social Sciences.
