Cultures and Identities in Transition returns to the roots of analytical psychology, offering a thematic approach which looks at personal and cultural identities in relation to Jung's own identity and the identities of contemporary Jungians.

The book begins with two clinical studies, representing a meeting point between the traditional praxis of Jungian analysis, on the one side, and the current zeitgeist, world events and collective anxieties as impacting on persons in therapy, on the other.

An international range of expert contributors go on to discuss topics including:

* issues of national and personal identity looking back to a shared history and forward to novel applications of Jungian ideas.

* Jung's cross-disciplinary dialogues with Victor White.

* what the designation "Jungian" actually means.

Based on papers given at the joint IAAP and IAJS conference held in Zurich in 2008, this book will be essential reading for all Jungians.
