Is the “Oedipus complex” universal? This book examines the controversial question in light of its collection of 139 family complex folktales from every world cultural area and every level of social complexity, the largest such collection ever made. From back cover: “This work is one of two books that won the 1997 Boyer Prize in psychoanalytic anthropology. The award is well deserved . . . this book makes major contributions to psychological and symbolic anthropology, folklore, evolutionary psychology, and psychonaysis.”—Dan W. Forsyth, University of Southern Colorado
