This handbook presents a thorough, scholarly overview of the psychology of racial, ethnic, and minority issues in the United States. It covers the breadth of psychology viewed through the lens of the racial and ethnic minority experience. The stellar collection of contributing authors provide readers with a comprehensive work that focuses on the professional, methodological, social and developmental, clinical, and applied and preventive issues shaping the field today. Highlighting leading research and application in the area of ethnic minority psychology, the Handbook will help set the direction of scholarly work in the area for years to come.
