Narrative and the Politics of Identity

The Cultural Psychology of Israeli and Palestinian Youth

Phillip L. Hammack

  • The model of cultural psychology proposed in this book challenges the mainstream cultural psychology as largely the identification of aggregate differences in various psychological dimensions by advancing a narrative approach.
  • The volume suggests changes to current peace education programs, relying on evidence from a longitudinal study of Israeli and Palestinian youth.
  • The book calls for a reinvigorated action research agenda which moves research interested in social transformation, as opposed to mere explanation or description, from margin to center in the discipline.
