"Dr. Kramer . . . is fast becoming one of the most productive and consistently insightful rnak scholars on the scene today. His major Rankian essays include treatments of Rank's place in the history of psychoanalysis, specific aspects of Rankian theory, Rank's influence on later major figures such as Carl Rogers, and the application of Rank's ideas to management theory."--The Ernest Becker Foundation
