In this newly updated edition, eminent anthropologist Charles Lindholm introduces the field of psychological anthropology, tracing the growth of the field. Interweaving perspectives from anthropology, psychology, and sociology, Lindholm applies the insights gained from these disciplines to daily life in the West, resulting in a new and challenging understanding of our selves and our contexts. Unlike other texts on similar subjects, Culture and Identity deals with contemporary issues, includes important theorists that have previously been ignored, and covers contemporary topics such as object relations, identity, emotions, cognition, symbolic systems, idealized relationships, and the psychology of groups.
