In Exploring Borders Giuseppe Mantovani highlights and explores the ways in which culture acts as a framework organising our experience. He emphasises the differences across and between cultures and examines the depths to which these can go. He also analyses the functions of culture, including: mediation, meaning-making, and forming a repertory of values and principles. Finally, he considers some of the challenges raised by taking a cultural perspective and examines how these may be addressed in society.
This highly original and eminently readable narrative will be invaluable to scholars of psychology, media and cultural studies, and to all those fascinated by culture and eager to to make the cultural dimension visible to all.

MEDIA REVIEWS
..."[W]ritten with a wonderful touch: conceptually sophisticated and yet quite accessible...informative and yet entertaining; and finally, pressing the work of cultural psychology toward issues of pressing concern...would make a marvellous introduction to cultural psychology.."
-Kenneth Gergen, Swarthmore College
"I am pretty familiar with the general theme and many of the materials contained in this book, but I never felt as if I were reading something "over again..."By recontextualizing even familiar materials and by his lucid explanations of the lessons to be learned from taking the cultural dimension of human life seriously, Mantovani makes the entire topic come alive.."
-Michael Cole, University of California
"Mantovani has done an expert job at simplifying and illustrating what it means to raise our cultural embeddedness from assumption to critical perception. His writing style is refreshing and engaging, and he is quite humorous in a lighthearted way. In myexperience, these qualities surface infrequently in academic books, and the shift I was reqired to make while reading it was pleasant.."
-Jennifer A. Vadeboncoeur, University of Queensland
