520    "This volume is the first comprehensive resource to assist
       neuropsychologists to provide culturally competent 
       services to Asian-Americans. It highlights pertinent 
       historical socio-cultural characteristics of the largest 
       Asian-American ethnic groups, which helps to conceptualize
       presentation, provide an optimal environment for test 
       administration, interpret tests within a cultural context,
       and offer culturally sensitive feedback and 
       recommendations. In addition, the volume gives a summary 
       of the available neuropsychological literature for each 
       Asian-American ethnic group, recommendations for testing, 
       and illustrative case samples. The second purpose of the 
       volume is to provide a glimpse of how neuropsychology is 
       currently practiced in different Asian countries, by 
       reviewing the neuropsychological literature and by listing
       the available resources. This information gives valuable 
       insights to neuropsychologists working with Asian 
       communities throughout the world. Neuropsychology of Asian
       -Americans is an essential resource for clinical 
       neuropsychologists and school psychologists who perform 
       neuropsychological services to Asians. It is also an 
       important resource for academic neuropsychologists and 
       students with Asians in their sample, as cultural 
       variables may have moderating effects on data that 
       information in this proposed book helps to elucidate"--
