    This set of four volumes provides a concise overview of research into cross-cultural aspects of psychology. The 72 articles that are reprinted here have been drawn from all areas of psychological investigation. In this chapter, we provide some introductory explanations as to reasons why we have selected the particular papers that have been included. We also discuss how we see the work that is described in them as illuminating what has already been achieved and what are some of the promising areas for further development. Fuller explorations of the issues that we touch on here can be found in recent textbooks (Smith, Bond, & Kagitcibasi, 2006; Chiu & Hong, 2006; Heine, 2008; Rogoff, 2003).
