Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“It speaks the language of psychology without jargon. I especially like the way she weaves together personality and social structure, illuminating so many aspects of Israeli society. Furthermore, the age group that Lieblich studies represents the future generation in all countries. Growth and development may look the same in various societies, but the shadings, nuances, and the meaning of adolescence will vary from culture to culture. This book deals with that issue effectively.” — Anne R. Bloom, Graduate Center, City University of New York

“The soldiers’ stories are fascinating and most illuminating for the theories.” — Ruth Linn, University of Haifa
