A Contribution to Cross-Cultural Child Development Research. Review of Gustav Jahoda and I.M. Lewis (Eds.), Acquiring Culture: Cross Cultural Studies in Child Development
Early Childhood Education
The field now termed cultural psychology has begun to take on more importance in theories of child development and psychology as we have come to better understand the Eurocentric bias of Western science. However, cross-cultural studies that combine both psychological and anthropological methods are still rare. This book attempts to show the value of such a combined approach to research in child development.
