Past debates have highlighted the importance of the self to a better understanding of the nature of culture and its relation to power. In his book, John Mandalios incorporates the current 'postmodern' debate on these issues with a deeper, philosophical exploration of identity and cultural formation, and the dynamics of social power underlying them. He takes up identity formation within an analysis of the historical, social, political, religious, and psychoanalytical dimensions of civilized life that can be traced back to the classical world.

MEDIA REVIEWS
...interesting and original book... * Sociology *
A pathbreaking book. . . . Mandalios makes a major contribution to what can broadly speaking be called civilizational analysis. . . . The specific perspective that Mandalios brings to bear on the civilizational issue, including intercivilizational encounters, revolves around the envelopment of the self by multiple civilizational processes. Mandalios takes great care in emphasizing that these multiple processes preceded by many centuries the period of late modernity that is so frequently discussed these days in connection with self-identity. -- Roland Robertson, University of Pittsburgh
