“The Handbook of Multicultural Measures is an indispensible source for any researcher in the social or behavioral sciences interested in the study of culture, broadly defined. Drs. Gamst, Liang, and Der-Karabetian scoured an international literature, and using strict, empirically-based inclusion criteria, selected roughly 240 of the strongest measures for use in multicultural research. Never before, in the history of multicultural psychology, has such a wealth of research material been made so available, so at the finger-tips, to a new generation of researchers. This one masterpiece of research integration will help raise the status of multicultural psychology to a new plateau of sophistication. The measures are not presented in isolation but in the context of critical theory and research in the field of multicultural psychology. The reader will quickly understand why the measures were created, what research or clinical questions they can help answer, and how they can be used in research studies. Importantly, the text provides information on the instrument copyright holder and how the reader can access permission to use the instruments. I found the specific reviews to be thorough, rigorous, yet fair and very professionally written. The Handbook of Multicultural Measures will provide both the motivation and a cognitive map that will effectively guide multicultural research in North America, and internationally, for the next decade. This book is simply tremendous.”
