In recent years the topic of acculturation has evolved from a relatively minor research area to one of the most researched subjects in the field of cross-cultural psychology. This edited handbook compiles and systemizes the current state of the art by exploring the broad international scope of acculturation. A collection of the world's leading experts in the field review the various contexts for acculturation, the central theories, the groups and individuals undergoing acculturation (immigrants, refugees, indigenous people, expatriates, students and tourists) and discuss how current knowledge can be applied to make both the process and its outcome more manageable and profitable. Building on the theoretical and methodological framework of cross-cultural psychology, the authors focus specifically on the issues that arise when people from one culture move to another culture and the reciprocal adjustments, tensions and benefits involved.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This book is a must for any scholar interested in the topic of acculturation. It provides a comprehensive overview of key theories, concepts and methods, and highlights the unique experience of varied groups coming into cultural contact across a wide range of circumstances. This would be a great textbook for a graduate level cross-cultural psychology course, and a necessary addition to the reference shelf of any cross-cultural scholar.' Dina Birman, University of Illinois, Chicago
'A collection of authoritative original research papers which should prove useful to scholars, practitioners and policy makers engaged with minority ethnic groups and immigrants.' Paul Ghuman, University of Wales, Aberystwyth
'This Handbook marks a major landmark in the development of acculturation studies, and provides a comprehensive, authoritative and cutting-edge review of what is now a multifaceted subject. This volume will be an indispensable resource.' Felix Neto, Universidade do Porto, Portugal
