Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Unlike Freud, Klein gained her insights on the psychoanalysis of children from working directly with young patients. In an analysis of Klein's break from both Sigmund and Anna Freud and such key concepts as projective identification and envy theory, a senior staff member at the Tavistock Clinic in London reassesses the career, writings (1921-63), and legacy of this influential, controversial figure in British psychoanalysis.
