Summary
In this volume Diane Halpern and Alexander Voiskounsky take advantage of recent political events in the former Soviet Union which have created a unique opportunity to study the ways in which two major world powers have defined contemporary psychological issues. States of Mind explores newly evolving areas of psychology that are particularly important at this time in history, including political psychology, the psychology of truth and lies, advertising and the media, alcoholism, psychological trauma, gerontology, prejudice and ethnicity, and environmental psychology, and addresses these topics from both post-Soviet and American perspectives
