Description

In a world of historical change and instantaneous global communication, people face the unpredictable with few certainties to fall back on. Yet rather than collapsing under these threats and pulls, this book states, the self turns out to be surprisingly resilient. Openness and change are the essence of the protean self. Based on interviews with people ranging from civic leaders to members of the underclass, and using examples from literature, this book describes how ordinary as well as extraordinary individuals are exploring these hopeful options and transforming their lives.
