What actually is creativity? And what contributes to its conceptualization and development? For decades, these and other questions have fascinated researchers, educators, parents and laypeople alike, and equally so in the East and West. This interesting collection of articles is an attempt at exploring and answering the above questions from both the Eastern and Western perspectives. Readers may find some answers stimulating, and others bewildering. This is in fact the reality and fascination of creativity research and education. It is hoped that readers will share the joy of reading such a road map.

"A particularly impressive feature of this book is the cultural diversity and regional variations represented by the range of authors … this book extended my understanding of the relationship between culture and creativity through the presentation of central theories and solid empirical evidence. It is also a good general reference book for anyone who is interesting in studying creativity or other topics with a cultural theme."
--American Journal of Psychology
