This volume is a welcome addition to the burgeoning literature on what I have termed 'anthropological psychoanalysis'. Unshackled from the Eurocentric, phallocentric, and heuristically-colonizing 'psychoanalytic anthropology', the contributors to this book locate psychic development in its cultural matrix, forge true interdisciplinary links, and accord significance to the regional idiom in therapeutic discourse. Within the context of India, they cover wide-ranging topics that include the mother-child relationship, the evolution of identity, moral narcissism, yoga, misogyny, and the ever-challenging notion of a cultural unconscious. This is a deeply informative book about both India and psychoanalysis!
