"This ambitious volume argues for the relevance and necessity for psychocultural perspectives for understanding globalization and its discontents.... I can not do justice here to the intriguing examples, case studies, and discussions of methodologies drawn from the authors' own research that make these essays grounded and engaging reading." (Anthropos, 2009)
"Absolutely without an equal among texts in the field ... this volume (is) particularly user friendly for instructors and readers." (Choice)
"What a wonderful surprise! Having edited, reviewed and contributed to many anthologies, I approached this Companion skeptically ... But the uniformly high quality of the writing soon won me over ... This volume achieves its goals of introducing new readers to psychological anthropology and of contributing to 'its growing vigor'." (Ethos: Journal of the Society for Psychological Anthropology)
"Any publication which draws the attention of psychologists to the existence of other cultures is extremely welcome ... This book can be recommended for its broad coverage and its range of interesting ideas. All university libraries catering for courses in psychology or in any sociological field should consider acquiring a copy." (Reference Reviews)“A much needed and impressive book. Soundly linking issues of perennial interest to psychological anthropologists, these chapters make for a truly significant advance in anthropology. The pages sparkle with rich, innovative ideas drawn from carefully rendered research by leading scholars.”
–Robert Desjarlais, Sarah Lawrence College
“On the forefront of discussions about the relationship between culture and psyche, this exciting, wide-ranging collection makes clear how much the field has changed and developed in recent years.”
