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.
