Description

Combining psychoanalytical practices with clinical data, this book explores the psychological effects of immigration on Asians and Asian Americans. Alan Roland, using his unique experience in India and Japan, argues that, in a global age where peoples and cultures have traversed the world as never before, there are other journeys to foreign selves–a self that until very recently remained foreign to Western psychology. Spanning the worlds of culture, psychology, and psychopathology, the book provides fascinating insights into the concept of the ‘spiritual self'. Journeys to Foreign Selves brings together extended case studies from New York, India, Japan, China, and Korea. By integrating sociocultural and socio-historical factors, it opens up new possibilities in the study of Indian personality and culture.
