“Inner Lives” is the first and only book series devoted to the subject of psychobiography. Each title in the series focuses on a single paradigmatic historical figure from the arts or politics (Bush, Capote, Lennon, etc) and makes use of current psychological theory and research to illuminate his/her life and work. The books are medium-length (roughly 200 pages) and written not for experts but for the average educated reader interested in lives, art, or culture. Every author is a leading psychological researcher or theorist with a strong background in personality science and psychobiography.
The books will appear sequentially, the first available in Fall/Winter of 2010. Below is a list of signed authors/subjects. More expected soon. Editor: William Todd Schultz.
