Psychology in Asia: An Introduction is the second edition of this introductory level textbook on psychology and human behavior written with an Asian focus.

The book introduces the central tenets of psychology, using examples and content which are culturally relevant and applicable to students in Asia. It covers essential topics of psychology including: personality, human development, psychological disorders, gender and sexuality, emotion, and positive psychology. Each chapter is accompanied by information relevant to Asian cultural context and connected to the region’s diverse heritage and history. For this second edition, the content has been substantially updated. In addition to standard topics found in texts on introductory psychology, this book includes chapters on the Tenets of Asian Psychology, Asian Philosophies, and Behavior.

The text includes features to help students familiarize themselves with the key terms that are defined in the page margins. It includes learning aids such as boxes that define theoretical and technical terms, and the activities in each chapter encourage active learning and critical thinking. The authors also provide useful resources such as study questions, chapter outlines, and references to journal articles that allow further reading. Students will benefit from an increased understanding of the concepts taught through the authors'' user-friendly academic writing style and colorful illustrations included throughout each chapter.

Through this accessible text, undergraduate and upper undergraduate students of psychology will learn about core topics and classical studies that originate in the West but do so alongside the important contributions that Asian psychology makes to the field.
