Achenbach and Rescorla integrate international findings to examine the cultural distinctions in children’s emotional and behavioral problems. They examine similarities, differences, challenges and patterns, while paying particular attention to prevention and treatment. By examining empirically based and diagnostically based approaches, the authors have created an excellent resource for psychopathology students, researchers and clinicians. (800) 365-7006,
