Psychological Dimensions of Near Eastern Studies


edited by L. Carl Brown and Norman Itzkowitz



About the Book:

    In this book, two broad fields, Psychology and Near Eastern Studies, are brought together in a pioneering effort to find our whether the various psychological theories and methodologies developed in the West are applicable to an understanding of the Near East.

    The essays in Part One deal with psychobiography, psychoculture, childhood, and society. Part Two deals with national character studies. In Part Three, practicing psychiatrists present a tout d'horizon of a vast area of psychiatry. A bibliographical essay provides a selective guide to the various psychological theories and methods that have been or can be usefully applied to Near Eastern Studies.
