About this Book

This Companion provides the first definitive overview of psychocultural anthropology: a subject that focuses on cultural, psychological, and social interrelations across cultures.


  • Brings together original essays by leading scholars in the field
  • Offers an in-depth exploration of the concepts and topics that have emerged through contemporary ethnographic work and the processes of global change
  • Key issues range from studies of consciousness and time, emotion, cognition, dreaming, and memory, to the lingering effects of racism and ethnocentrism, violence, identity and subjectivity
