Description

Zusammenfassung A.R. Luria was one of the most significant psychological researchers and theorists of the 20th century. Luria lived in fear of the Soviet Union and his autobiography was cryptic. Michael Cole has uncovered much personal information since the fall of the Union and this edition has a new introduction and epilogue that adds information and detail.

"For anyone who is familiar with and admires Alexander Romanovich Luria, this book is a delight. For those who are unfamiliar, or only vaguely familiar with him, it is an astonishing revelation.."
PsycCRITIQUES

"It is splendid to have available a new edition of Luria's autobiography, together with a new Preface and Epilogue. ... The scientific community will welcome the opportunity to review Luria's scientific life and seminal ideas. And now, from the perspective of life after the USSR, an even wider community of scholars will learn about the extraordinary social context in which he worked."
Larry R. Squire, Ph.D.
Professor of Psychiatry and Neurosciences, UCSD School of Medicine and Research
