An unusual and useful group of essays by leading authorities in the fields of psycho-therapy and human relations, this book is slanted toward the layman. This is no excursion into the ins and outs of theory but a helpful discussion of some of the thornier problems of living as an individual and as a member of a group. The relations between man and woman; the double standard; marriage; mother and child; age and youth; racial minority problems; the teacher and student; friendship; employer-employee associations; the pastor and parishioner and the role of the citizen in his community, -- are discussed in general, always with the focus on psychological effects of each situation upon the citizen-individual which contain within themselves the directions solutions might take. Among the authors -- Erich Fromm, Lawrence Kubie, Frederick Allen, Francis Bradeland, Margaret Mead, Clyde Kluckhohn, John Millet, Leo Bartemeier, Otis Rice and George Stevanson. Stimulating, informative with a double for youth groups.
