This bibliography was produced as part of an Office of Naval Research project titled “Cultural Influences on Intertemporal Reasoning.” The project approach is intended to provide a platform of knowledge based on existing research that will improve our ability to field useful and meaningful decision support in cultures where the capacity for such support is either limited or non-existent, with a focus on three non-Western cultures: Arab, Pashtun and Somali culture. The focus of the project is on intertemporal reasoning and how the focal cultures differ in this respect from the West. Intertemporal reasoning is defined as the psychosocial and cultural processes engaged when people are called upon to either integrate past experiences and events or projects forward to the future. This bibliography is a collection of annotated entries that each of the three project researchers developed as part of their particular examination of the existing literature. Emphasis is on Arab culture, owing to the relative availability of resources published in English. Intended readers include those with an interest in this highly-focused aspect of non-Western cultures.
