Social psychology by Otto Klineberg( Book )

125 editions published between 1940 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 1,272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The rapid changes which have occurred in the content of social psychology, both in its concepts and in its data, have seemed to me to justify the appearance of a new textbook in the field. More particularly, the increasing concern of psychologists with other cultures has suggested that there might be some interest in an attempt at integration between psychology and ethnology. This integration is by no means complete, but I have the hope that some at least of the findings of ethnology and comparative sociology have been brought within the psychologist's frame of reference. At the same time the traditional content of social psychology has also been taken into consideration, although to a somewhat reduced extent because of the inclusion of materials from neighboring social sciences. With the increasing variety of courses offered in psychology, it is inevitable that social psychology will trespass upon related fields. As far as the present text is concerned, this is true especially of the sections dealing with Differential Psychology and with Personality. In spite of possible overlapping it was decided that these materials do belong legitimately within the scope of social psychology. References have been appended rather liberally at the end of each chapter for the convenience of the student or teacher interested in supplementary reading"--Preface.

"The decision of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) to include the study of tensions affecting international understanding as a major project in its program is a logical consequence of its concern with research and education in the maintenance of peace. Areas of tension between nations that regard themselves as most friendly are commonly evident in the words and actions of both public officials and private citizens. They are the foci of conflict in cold war and open hostility. Understanding of these tensions, fundamental to their relief, is so beclouded by stereotyped thinking, nationalistic feelings, catch phrases, and slogans that the need for objective study of their sources and of procedures for resolving them under the auspices of an international cooperative body such as UNESCO is self-evident. International tensions and the techniques for their relief, however, have received very little direct research attention from social scientists who specialize in problems of social behavior. Traditionally, research in international relations has been mainly the province of historians, students of international law and procedure, and diplomats. More recently, and particularly since the experience of World War II demonstrated the practical utility of scholarly knowledge of foreign areas and peoples, there has been a marked increase in research designed to advance understanding of all parts of the world by area specialists with various disciplinary backgrounds. But as yet sociologists, social psychologists, and social anthropologists--the social scientists most directly concerned with problems of behavior--have done little research on international behavior. The present monograph by Dr. Otto Klineberg is an imaginative and technically skillful ordering and application of scattered and fragmentary products of research on human behavior, so that they may be brought to bear with full force on tensions crucial to peace. Modest in its claims for social science, it points the way to the application of a widening range of knowledge relevant to the reduction of the totality of international tensions. It does not profess definitiveness for existing research techniques, yet it establishes their utility and will stimulate the research needed to give a sounder basis in fact and principle for increasing international understanding and cooperation. Credit is meticulously given to others for their contributions to every section of the work, and it is consequently fitting to say here that Dr. Klineberg has given form and direction to a previously unstructured area of social knowledge"--Foreword.

At a foreign university : an international study of adaptation and coping by Otto Klineberg( Book )

9 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An international study of adaptation and coping of students, faculty, and administrators involved with foreign student exchange is examined using data obtained in 11 countries--Brazil, Canada, the Federal Republic of Germany, France, Hong Kong, India, Iran, Japan, Kenya, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The following are included: methodological considerations; the characteristics and perceptions of the student population; interviews with foreign students about the problems and difficulties experienced; the problems of personal interactions and friendships; national and ethnic relations; consequences of the sojourn; an analysis of case studies on the process of coping; the "U-Curve" hypothesis; national profiles; and international relationships. Several conclusions were reported such as students from the Latin American countries being the most likely to report their perceptions at one extreme or another, and those from Arabic-speaking countries most likely to report most of their contact with other Arabic-speaking students. The factors most important with regard to coping were: (1) social contact with those local to the sojourn culture and area, and (2) prior foreign experience as evidenced by previous travel. It is suggested that adequate information about the foreign student and the host institution is a requirement if the adjustment is to be made, as well as recognition of the possible problems that are sometimes automatic in a foreign exchange. Appendices include: country of citizenship; total respondent population; country of citizenship: by country of sojourn; and origins: geographical area divisions. Statistical tables are provided. (Lc)
