If you can mentally formulatethis image and want to know more, then PsychologicalAnthropology: A Reader on Self in Culture is a book for you."(PsycCritiques, December 2010)

"The best introduction currently available for the study ofpsychological experience and cultural contexts around the world,prepared by the leading psychological anthropologist in the fieldtoday."
