Fielding faculty Stephen Murphy-Shigematsu authors book When Half is Whole


sms coverStephen Murphy-Shigematsu, Fielding Graduate University faculty in the School of Human & Organizational Development (HOD), has authored a new book When Half is Whole published by Stanford University Press.

Publishers Weekly says "When Half is Whole succeeds both as a comprehensive ethnic studies volume and an enlightening memoir of pushing back against categorizing humans with singular, rather than multiple identities.” Amy Chua, author of Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, acclaims it as “a moving and thought-provoking book! Brilliantly nuanced, searingly honest, and beautifully written, When Half is Whole raises profound, often uncomfortable questions about race, identity, and the search for human connection.”

Stephan explains:"I listen and gather people's stories. Then I write them dStephan Murphy-Shigematsuown in a way that I hope will communicate something to others, so that seeing these stories will give readers something of value. I tell myself that this isn't going to be done unless I do it, just because of who I am. It's a way of making my mark, leaving something behind . . . not that I'm planning on going anywhere right now."

Stephen Murphy-Shigematsu is a Japanese/American multicultural psychologist and author specializing in understanding and illuminating issues of diversity and identity in nations, organizations, families, and individuals. He is on the faculties of the Stanford School of Medicine, Stanford University Center for Comparative Studies of Race and Ethnicity, University of Tokyo, and Fielding Graduate University.
