Inner World by Sudhir Kakar Inner World, Paperback (August 2012)

An inquiry into the development of Indian identity, the book examines the network of social roles, traditional values, and customs with which the threads of Indian psychological development are interwoven. This fourth edition includes a Prologue which situates the work in the contemporary scenario.

Mad and Divine by Sudhir Kakar Mad and Divine, Hardback (September 2009)

Looks at the interplay between spirit and psyche and the moments of creativity and transformation that occur when the spirit overcomes desire and narcissism. This book examines this relationship in religious rituals and healing traditions - both Eastern and Western - as well as in the lives of some extraordinary men.
