Booknews
Altman (Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis, New York U.) addresses the complex social issues revolving around race, culture, and social class in inner city public clinics, arguing that social divisions reflect the splits that accompany the consolidation of an individual sense of self. He presents vignettes illustrating the work within an inner city clinic, traces the history of psychoanalysis in the public sector, and offers insights on the future of psychoanalysis in the age of managed care.
