Anyone interested to learn more about the history, the politics, the culture and the literature of Kong Kong, known in English as Fragrant Harbor, and the effect on individual development, should read this book. It is one of several books and research projects emerging from Jungian analysts and past routers working in cross-cultural partnerships in different parts of the world. Marta Tibaldi and her five colleagues are to be congratulated for producing a book that is of interest at many different levels.

“This unique book gathers the biographical journeys of students and senior members of the Hong Kong Analytical Psychology community, all of them highly influenced – inspired really – by teaching, supervision and treatment from Marta Tibaldi and her Western Jungian colleagues. In this way, it represents the way that their influence has not only taken root in Hong Kong, but has already led to the beginnings of a ramification of analytical ideas and work in this unique Chinese-Western cultural mix.”
