Cigdem Kagitcibasi's influential volume was a work of masterful scholarship and field-defining thought that challenged the existing assumptions in mainstream western psychology about the nature of individuals. During the past two decades since its publication, cultural and cross-cultural research and theory on the self, family, and human development have expanded greatly, developing fruitfully from the basic issues and paradigms Kagitcibasi explored. This Classic Edition provides a critical assessment, consideration, and reflection of recent scholarship in this field. It brings this essential work up to date and appraises it in the light of current prevailing perspectives.

Review quote

Praise for the previous edition: '...a tour de force of integration and synthesis, [this volume] is readable, informative, and accessible both to researchers in the field of cultural and cross-cultural psychology and to college and graduate students interested in a broader perspective regarding human development. ... Kagitcibasi has made a dramatic and valuable contribution to thinking about the individual, the family, and culture in both the Majority World and the West.' - PsycCRITIQUES
