Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1998, Vol 43(11), 780-781. With explicit attention to culture and to cross-cultural similarities and differences, Earley (see record 1997-36279-000) presents a perspective that combines micro-and macroconcepts for the analysis of people's development of a self-identity and their movement beyond themselves into society and its organizations. The central concept investigated by Earley is face, a term often used in discussions of behavior in Asia. Earley clearly feels that face is a universal concern, and it involves people's self-identity and their social identity. This book will find a valuable place in the bibliographies of scholars working in areas such as cross-cultural psychology, industrial psychology, personality, small groups, and the relation between culture and society.
