The Oxford Handbook of Acculturation and Health brings together three very different, but complementary, streams of work: theoretical and methodological "basic" work on acculturation, and applied work linking acculturation to various health outcomes among international migrants and their families, and interventions applying acculturation-related principles to prevent or treat health behaviors or problems. In this volume, the work of landmark acculturation theorists and methodologists appears in the same volume as applied epidemiologic and intervention work on acculturation and public health. This volume highlights theoretical, methodological, and applied research on the study of acculturation in an effort to connect fundamental principles of acculturation theories with research linking these theories to health outcomes. Although the majority of acculturation and health research has been conducted on the experiences of Hispanic immigrants in the United States, the principles featured in this volume are also intended to apply to other immigrant groups in the United States and elsewhere.
