We introduce the aims of the book and provide an overview of the different chapters included in the edited volume. The chapters cover a broad spectrum of research on Asian learners and their learning experiences with topics ranging from more microlevel processes focusing on beliefs, self-related constructs, approaches to learning, motivation, goals, and well-being to larger macro-level psychological phenomena such as socio-contextual factors and broader sociocultural influences. We also highlight David Watkins’ legacy to cross-cultural and educational psychology and dedicate this book as a Festschrift in his honor. Copyright © 2016 Springer Science+Business Media Singapore.
