 A significant factor in determining interpersonal relationships acros cultures is gender. It can have great importance to be able to understand how culture influences gender role expectations, marital satisfaction or the managing of conflicts in close relationships. Among the twelve chapters, seven are related to the psychological tasks that cultural diversity poses and five to close interpersonal relationships and their cross-cultural aspects. The reader can learn, among others things, about Tibetan refugees in India, German expatriates in China, immigrants in rural Canada, Polish young adults' perception of conflicts in close relationships in Poland, France and Spain.
