Handbook of Asian American Psychology Synopsis

The Second Edition of the Handbook of Asian American Psychology fills a fundamental gap in the Asian American literature by addressing the full spectrum of methodological, substantive, and theoretical areas related to Asian American Psychology. This new edition provides important scholarly contributions by a new generation of researchers that address the shifts in contemporary issues for Asians and Asian Americans in the U.S. Key Features:Represents a new generation of research: The editorial team consists of up-and-coming scholars under the leadership of Frederick T. L. Leong, one of the senior scholars in this area. Contributing authors have been selected from among the leading scholars, scientists, and practitioners in the field. Addresses contemporary issues: A proliferation of research has focused growing attention to life-span developmental issues, multiracial-multiple identities, health psychology, and the impact of stereotyping and discrimination within the Asian American community. This both broadens the coverage offered by the handbook and brings more balanced coverage across the major domains of psychology and across major groups such as men, women, the elderly, and immigrants. Emphasizes historical, conceptual, and methodological issues: Two new introductory chapters provide coverage of the history and future of Asian American psychology, as well as theoretical and conceptual models.Intended Audience:This is an ideal textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses on Asian American Psychology. It is also an excellent resource for researchers, scholars, students, practitioners, and clinical agencies interested in Asian American Psychology, as well as a welcome addition to any academic library.aaaa This is an ideal textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses on Asian American Psychology.

Handbook of Asian American Psychology Press Reviews

The editorial team of Leong et al. have put together a handbook that is above all else a practical work that will not gather dust on the shelf. This is a book that will be used. -- Lowell Brubaker This insightful and comprehensive volume is a gift to the field and a must-read. It isn't just for the growing number of us who need to understand the psychology of Asian Americans, but for any scholar theorizing about the dynamics of identity, race, cultural competence, immigration, acculturation, or globalization. -- Hazel Rose Markus A psychology of human nature and nurture cannot be complete without understanding 3/5's of the world's people. This Handbook is the first to accomplish an understanding of them by investigating the diaspora in North America. In so doing, it sets a new landmark. -- Mahzarin R. Banaji If anyone is curious about the depth and scope of the sociocultural and psychological experiences of Asian Americans then this Handbook should be kept close by for use as a reference and a resource.... Set against a well-developed organizational framework that blends the major themes of inquiry for this ethnic population the reader is introduced to profound insights, engaging observations and research results, and cutting edge commentary on the future of ethnic psychological research and scholarship. -- Joseph E. Trimble, PhD This is the most outstanding resource on Asian American psychology that exists in the professional market today. No only does it provide state-of-the-art knowledge on this important racial/ethnic group, but it has implications for the entire field of psychology and challenges the universality of its concepts. I applaud the editors and contributors for the excellence of this Second Edition. It is `must' reading for not only classes in multicultural psychology, but should be a required resource for the social sciences. -- Derald Wing Sue
