"...it does offer a sophisticated analysis of the privatization of rural industry in China, thick in social science theory and rich with empirical data." Benedict Stavis, Comparative Politics
John Whiting is a leading figure in psychological anthropology and a pioneer in the development of systematic cross- cultural research. His work is interdisciplinary drawing 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, and a comprehensive autobiographical essay. Roy D'Andrade's introduction assesses the unique contributions of Whiting and locates his work within the contemporary currents of psychological research.
