The Cambridge Dictionary of Psychology is the f rst and only dictionary that surveys the broad discipline of psychology from an international, crosscultural, and interdisciplinary focus. This focus was achieved in several ways. The managing and consulting editorial boards comprise worldrenowned scholars in psychology from many different countries, not just the United States. They reviewed and edited all of the keyword entries to make them lively and applicable across cultural contexts, incorporating the latest knowledge in contemporary international psychology.
Thus entries related to culture, as well as those from all domains of psychology, are written with the broadest possible audience in mind. Also, many keywords central to contemporary psychology were incorporated that are not included by many competitors, including the Oxford and American Psychological Association dictionaries.
