In this revised edition, Lindholm introduces the field of psychological anthropology, tracing the growth of the field, interweaving perspectives from anthropology, psychology, and sociology, and applying the insights gained to an understanding of daily life in the West. Unlike other texts, 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, idealized relationships, and the psychology of groups.
