What People are Saying About This

John T. Chirban

Dr. Daniel Burston's Erik Erikson and the American Psyche is a remarkable and unusual find. This book illuminates Erikson's person, placing this psychological giant in context, consistently showing the quality of insight and psychological depth characteristic of Erikson himself. Burston's rich historical research and psychological precision demonstrates how psychobiography should be done, providing us with a unique and substantive portrait of a revered icon of modern psychology.
