After delineating his theory of identity, Professor Baumeister draws on a wealth of historical, cultural, philosophical, literary, and psychological evidence - from the birth of the 'hidden self' shortly after medieval times, to the present preoccupation with selfhood - to describe the stages by which contemporary men and women encounter and resolve crises in identity. The result is a fascinating and scholarly history of identity in western culture, framed by a major new psychological theory. Psychologists and psychology students.
