The Quiet Therapies: Japanese Pathways to Personal Growth
"A provocative but balanced book that will be of great interest for all concerned with Japan, religiously based therapies, and the cure of nervous disorders, it may challenge one's assumptions about such notions as the nature of 'self' as well as provide insight into life, suffering, and happiness." --Religious Studies Review "The descriptions of the various therapies are informative, vivid, and engaging." --Contemporary Psychology "The penetrating account given in an afterword by George DeVos delineates the important psychological differences between Americans and Japanese that render Western psychoanalysis inapplicable to the Japanese scene." --Journal of the American Medical Association "Will undoubtedly become a landmark in comparative psychiatry and social anthropology." --American Journal of Psychiatry
