John Whiting is a leading figure in psychological anthropology and one of the pioneers in the development of systematic cross-cultural research. His work is interdisciplinary, and he draws mainly upon the fields of anthropology, psychoanalysis, and learning and behaviour theory. This book includes some of his most influential articles on culture and human development, as well as a comprehensive autobiographical essay. Roy D'Andrade's introduction assesses the unique contributions of John Whiting and locates his work within the contemporary currents of psychological research.

Industry Reviews

'Psychologists keen to escape the confines of a narrow laboratory approach to the study of human behaviour should find this volume offers a window to an almost forgotten enterprise relevant to their contemporary concerns.' Times Higher Education Supplement
