Cross-cultural communication is a field of study that looks at how people from differing cultural backgrounds communicate, in similar and different ways among themselves, and how they endeavor to communicate across cultures. Intercultural communication is a related field of study. During the Cold War, the economy of the United States was largely self-contained because the world was polarized into two separate and competing powers: the East and the West.

A comprehensive, systematic account of human development which is sensitive to the needs, interests and ecologies of nonwestern cultures and individuals is provided in this unique volume. The importance and value of the sociocultural milieu in shaping the growth and development of children is emphasized, and the author asserts throughout that children do not grow and develop according to the same patterns regardless of culture.

The author describes developmental psychology from the perspective of West Africa, demonstrating how the local ecology and the resulting cultural ideology lead to differing ways in which children are conceptualized and socialized, and in turn how they develop. While much of his case material is from

As both an educator and research developmentallist, I was extraordinarily pleased with Dr. Nsamenang's work. Dr. A. Bame Nsamenang is a professor of psychology and learning sciences at Yaoundé University's Advanced School of Education in Cameroon . He also co-founded and directs the Human Development Resource Centre (HDRC), a research and service facility in Bamenda, Cameroon. Dr. Nsamenang's book, "Human Development in Cultural Context: A Third World Perspective (Cross Cultural Research and Methodology)" is intended for anyone seeking a degree in an institute of higher learning, with particular focus on education and child development, and will often capture the Western reader by surprise. For example, some sub-Saharan three year-olds start the cook fire and prepare evening meals while teaching their two year-old siblings the requisite procedures.

As American classrooms and neighborhoods become progressively more diverse, teachers, school counselors, child psychologists, and administrators must acquire a much broader understanding of human development in order to meet the new challenges. Dr. Nsamenang provides an evidence-based account of how differing cultures may fit together, and how they often clash, and what the implications may be. With case studies and details regarding specific study methodologies, his book opens the door to understanding non-Western cultures - which account for approximately 85% of the entire human race.

Well worth the reading for those minimally familiar with developmental theorists such as Erikson, Piaget, Vygotsky, Bruner, Maslow, Bandura, and Greenfield.

I found Bame Nsamenangs book titled, Human development in cultural context: A third world perspective, intriguing, yet too "intellectual." In this book, Nsamenang reports his studies on the culture of (West) Africa from a standpoint of the development of a child in a collectivist culture. As (West)Africa is a collectivist culture, where they place more emphasis on the group rather than on the individual, Nsamenang seeks to explain the influences on the individual though the various aspects of life. More specifically, he focuses on the historical, environmental, and social aspects that affect the development of the "self" in the culture. For example, Nsamenang states that, "although individuals, particularly children, are submerged in a network of social scripts and status rules that demand conformity and promote collectivism, they are not overly subdued by a herd mentality." As his book is directed more towards scholars in the field of social science, I feel that this book is written at a level that is above "average intelligence." Nsamenang uses words that are not sensitive to the "general" reader. I found myself looking up words simply because they were not in my mental dictionary or they were words that typically are not used in our culture compared to that of West Africa. However, because I am not an expert in the field of social science I don't fault Nsamenang for the position he took in writing this text. His studies were done in Cameroon, so it is evident that he would know more of what he is talking about than would I.
