Applied Psychology: A Global Perspective Is An Exceptional Book In Many Ways. First, It Is A Pioneering Work In Covering The Global Issues As Compared To Other Books On The Subject That Are Narrowly Focussed On Either The Western Or The Non-Western Issues. Second, It Covers Many Vital Topics Such As Technology And Religion That Are Not Covered In The Other Available Books On Applied Social Psychology. And Last But Not The Least Important, The Book Deals With Real Applied Issues Involving Interventions, A Problem In Many Non-Western Publications That Fail To Distinguish Between Basic, Applicable, Applicability And Applied Issues Of Social Psychology And Mislabel Many Among Them As Applied . I Commend The Authors For Their Deligence In Presenting The Facts Collected From Researches In Many Countries. Omar Sayeed, Dean Of Research,Nitie, MumbaiIn The Past Two Decades, Several Books Have Been Written On Applied Social Psychology, The Focus Primarily Being On Research And Its Interpretation In The Western Countries, With A Clear Distinction Being Made Between Basic Research In Social Psychology And The Applicable, Applicability And Applied Nature Of The Findings. This Latter Issue Has, However, Not Always Been Appreciated By Many Scholars In Non-Western Parts Of The World. As A Result, Scholars Of Social Psychology In Non-Western Regions Of The World Have Frequently Erred In Their Judgment Of What Constitutes The Applied Nature Of Social Psychology. Secondly, Applied Social Psychology Depends A Great Deal On Intervention Programs That Not Only Invite Work Beyond The Basic, Applicable And Applicability Aspects But Also Are Costly To Implement And Time Consuming. Due To Both These Reasons, Most Of The Books From The Non-Western Countries Fall Short Of The True Applied Aspects Of Social Psychology. In This Respect, Applied Social Psychology: A Global Perspective Is A Pioneering Book Dealing With Applied Social Psychology From Both The Western And The Non-Western Perspectives. The Book Also Points Out The Limits Of Non-Western Social Psychological Findings Claimed As Applied Though Lacking The Support Of Intervention Programs. At The Same Time, The Problems, Issues And Challenges In Intervening At The Cross-Cultural Level Have Been Succinctly Dealt With.In Writing This Book, The Authors Have Gone Beyond The Topics Found In Traditional Text Books Of Applied Social Psychology, For Example, Applied Social Psychology Of The Environment, Health, Law, Education, Consumer Behavior Etc, And Have Also Focused On Two Extremely Important Areas Of Our Life, That Have Otherwise Remained Neglected In Most Books On Applied Social Psychology. These Are The Realms Of Technology And Religion. Another Important Addition Is A Chapter On Aggression And Non-Violence. Overall, This Book Presents A Wide Range Of Topics That Describe How Social Psychology Can Be Applied To Daily Life And Its Problems. It Is Expected That This Book Will Not Only Serve As An Ideal Textbook For Undergraduate And Postgraduate Students But Will Also Prove Informative And Useful For Researchers And Professionals From Various Walks Of Life.

Psychology has focused more on personalities in poverty -- pathologizing -- than on contexts for poverty reduction (Pick & Sirkin, 2010). As a result, the discipline has inadvertently sequestered and isolated itself, and its potential contribution, from poverty reduction initiatives - globally and locally. In recent years, there have been major developments in both the scope and depth of psychological research on global development issues. Some of the key developments include significant advances in understanding of what motivates teachers in schools, on designing community interventions to promote health, and on managing the development of human “capacity” in aid and development projects. The Psychology of Poverty Reduction is poised to capture such advances in the understanding of ‘what works’ - and what does not.

This book is a follow up to Social Capital and Health (2008), edited by Kawachi, Subramanian & Kim. Global Perspectives on Social Capital and Health provides a timely update on emerging topics in a fast-growing field, and features contributions from an outstanding international team of scholars, selected from a diverse range of disciplinary backgrounds including: social epidemiology, medical geography, social psychology, social welfare and gerontology, pediatrics, political science, economics, and medical sociology. The book is organized in three parts: Part 1. Emerging directions in social capital research. This section highlights novel directions in social capital research. These include: a) novel settings for conducting research on social capital (workplaces, schools), b) new approaches for causal inference in social capital (instrumental variable analysis, twin fixed effects designs); c) cutting-edge directions for social capital research, including studies of the origins of community social capital, the use of social network analysis to investigate social capital, and novel methods for investigating the link between social capital and crime. Part 2. Social capital and health policy. The three chapters in this section highlight implications of social capital for interventions and health policy. Part 3. Social capital and health in global perspective The four chapters in this section look at research on social capital and health from a global perspective. The authors summarize the empirical studies on social capital and health conducted in each country/region, or each population group; discuss how the concept of social capital “translates” across different cultures; and identify challenges and future directions for research.

Dorothy Wertz and John Fletcher pioneered the first international study of ethical and social issues in genetics in 18 nations. This book reports and discusses their second and more representative study in 36 nations. The survey focused on actual situations that occur in the practice of medical genetics, presented as case vignettes that can also be used in teaching and policy discussion. Among the issues discussed are privacy, prenatal diagnosis, patient autonomy, directiveness in counseling, sex selection, forensic DNA banking, "genetic discrimination," and "eugenics". This is Dorothy Wertz's final book, as she died in April, 2003. It is a one of a kind cross-cultural study of complex ethical issues in the uses of genetic information. No one else has attempted to look at the international aspects of medical genetics on such a broad scale. The results provide a resource for discussion both within and among nations. Much bioethical and policy discussion now occurs in an information vacuum. The survey showed that what people would do, and their reasons for doing it, differed considerably from what ethicists think they "should" do. Many will be surprised at the results, especially in nations where bioethical discussion is just beginning. Genetics and Ethics in Global Perspective is of interest to medical geneticists, genetic counselors, social scientists and anthropologists who study cross-cultural issues, bioethicists and bioethics centers and health policy makers.

Aggression in Global Perspective attempts to present both an elucidating and a utilitarian picture of aggression in global perspective: elucidating, in that it serves to help deepen the understanding of the meaning and nature of aggression throughout the world; utilitarian, in that its companion focus on aggression controls and alternatives in global perspective actually functions to aid the constructive, prosocial, anti-aggression efforts which do exist, or might exist, to more readily and more fully succeed. The book begins by drawing upon individual cultural perspectives on aggression, aggression control, and aggression alternatives to offer a more unified, global perspective. It compares, contrasts, distills differences and similarities, and suggests specific directions for future research and applied efforts at better understanding of aggression. The chapters which follow describe contemporary manifestations of aggression in a large number of nations representing almost the entire world. These descriptions are placed in a cultural context, providing an understanding of why, for the given country or region, aggression currently assumes particular forms, rates, and intensities. Such contextual information is also utilized in most of the ensuing chapters to aid in understanding how aggression ""fits in"" or is conceptualized in each nation's stream of daily living.
