From the Publisher"The Analyst's Preconscious is the most innovative book on psychoanalytic theory in print today. Victoria Hamilton adots a totally new perspective on the understanding of psychoanalytic theories and, in so doing, provides an enlightening commentary on the evolution of psychoanalytic ideas. Her grasp of psychoanalytic theory is breathtaking, and her book makes an essential companion to any course that aims to convey that theory in a comprehensive way. At the same time, it will provide all practitioners with profound insights into the ways in which their learning translates into the styles and strategies of everyday clinical work."

"Early on in my reading of Victoria Hamilton's The Analyst's Preconscious, I became astonished that nobody had written on this subject before. One reason may be: What an enormous amount of work! Hamilton's rigor, fairmindedness, and clarity are exemplary, and her very readable interviews provide the best view I can imagine of how analysts really think about what they do. Though this was undoubtedly not part of Hamilton's intention, her book is a tribute to her profession."

"Victoria Hamilton succeeds in getting right into the minds of analysts of different persuasions, and in demonstrating the great and often unexpected differences in the way they approach their work. This is a beautifully written, fascinating, and highly stimulating account of a major research project, the results of which will undoubtedly demolish many cherished ideas about the different schools of psychoanalysis and the ways in which different practitioners structure their analytic technique."
