|Summary:||"This edited volume responds to the absence of a comprehensive consideration of the implications of culture for children's peer relationships. Although research in this field has burgeoned in recent years, cultural issues have often been overlooked. The chapters in this book tap such issues as the impact of social circumstances and cultural values on peer relationships, culturally prescribed socialization patterns and processes, emotional experience and regulation in peer interactions, children's social behaviors, cultural aspects of friendships, and peer influences on social and school adjustment in cultural context. The role of culture and development is particularly emphasized in the chapters. The authors incorporate into their discussions findings from research programs using multiple methodologies, including both qualitative (e.g., interviewing, ethnographic, and observational) and quantitative (e.g., large-scale survey, standardized questionnaire) approaches, based on a wide range of ages (from early childhood to youth) of children in cultures from East to West and from South to North (Asia, South America, the Mid East, Southern Europe, and ethnic groups in the United States)."--Publisher's description.|
