"This volume, ably assembled and introduced by Robert Coles, presents the Essential Erikson." Howard Gardner
From the Publisher:
Erikson, whose work first described the now familiar concepts of "identity crisis" and "life cycle," provided an unprecedented framework for considering the individual psyche within society and culture. Unveiling a dynamic process of psychological development, he emphasized the tendency toward growth and the integration of multiple influences the biological, social, psychological, cultural, and historical.
With writings from Erikson's entire career, including major work from CHILDHOOD AND SOCIETY, INSIGHT AND RESPONSIBILITY, YOUNG MAN LUTHER, and GANDHI'S TRUTH, this invaluable reader charts the influence of Erikson's thinking in the areas of child psychology, development through the lifespan, leadership, and moral growth.Erik H. Erikson is recognized as one of the world's leading figures in the field of psychoanalysis and human development. His ideas about the stages of development, the sources of identity, and the interdependence of individual growth and historical change revolutionized our understanding of the nature and course of psychological growth.

Author Bio
Robert Coles
Robert Coles was born in Boston, Massachusetts and has been associated with that city throughout most of his professional life, teaching and doing research at Harvard University Medical School. He received a B.A. from Harvard in 1950, and his M.D. from Columbia University. A psychiatrist by training, he studied under Erik Erikson, and was influenced by his mentor's theories on the developmental stages of children. Most of his work reflects his insights garnered through his daily contact with and observation of children at play and in clinical settings. It also shows a concern for children in society and for society as a whole. He won a Pulitzer Prize for his "Children of Crisis" series of books. A prolific writer, Coles has also authored books on the moral and spiritual lives of children and has an interest in documentary writing--having served as a guiding force to "DoubleTake" magazine. He has cited William Carlos Williams and James Agee as influences.
