About this title

Synopsis:

The question of whether personal gratification is compatible with social good is one of the fundamental problems of motivation. The family, an institution that has undergone extraordinary change in the last generation, is perhaps the most profound context in which to consider this issue. This volume is tinged with prophetic concern about the state of contemporary family life and about the (un)likelihood of reconciling individual family members’ interests with those of the family as a whole. The nine contributors’ backgrounds are diverse—anthropology, economics, law, and clinical, community, developmental, and social psychology—and their positions on the nature of motivation in families vary widely. Their views are often disquieting and sometimes conflicting as they offer provocative analyses of divorce, family violence, political transitions, and concerns of both Western and non-Western cultures.

From the Back Cover:

This volume of the Nebraska Symposium on Motivation is unusual. The backgrounds of the authors are more diverse than ever before- approached only by the symposium Gary B. Melton organized about a decade ago in observance of the 10th anniversary of the Law/Psychology Program (Melton, 1985). The authors are drawn from anthropology, economics, law, and several subdisciplines of psychology.
