about

What if you found yourself working for an intelligence agency and suddenly your understanding of other human beings had become a matter of life or death? Yair Neuman draws us into a unique thought experiment, using portraits from some of Shakespeare's most stirring works to illustrate how our psychological understanding of human nature can be significantly enriched through literature. Provocative and engaging, Shakespeare for the Intelligence Agent: Toward Understanding Real Personalities invites you to a challenging, enjoyable, and in many cases humorous reading of human personality through Shakespeare's plays.
Yair Neuman, PhD, is a professor in the Department of Education at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Israel. He is the author of Introduction to Computational Cultural Psychology, and his work has been published extensively in leading journals for various disciplines including psychology, psychoanalysis, and information sciences.

"Yair Neuman has produced a highly original book, full of scholarly insight and imaginative understanding. As he applies ideas about personality to the works of Shakespeare, he moves easily from psychology to literature and back again. This is a book to enjoy and learn from."
