Editorial Reviews

Peter B. Zeldow
This book consists of 14 papers written by the author during the last five years, nine of which have previously appeared in psychoanalytic journals or edited books. The overriding theme is the dialectic between tradition and innovation in psychoanalysis. Topics include the problem of evidence, the place of both morality and values in psychoanalytic theory and practice, "binary" conceptions of gender and sexuality, transference, and countertransference. The purpose is to collect "a family of essays that belong together in one place." Contemporary psychoanalysis is often misunderstood and difficult to characterize. The essays included here represent Schafer's most recent contributions to the debate over what constitutes the essence of psychoanalytic theory and practice. The book is intended for anyone with an interest in psychoanalysis. This would include not only psychiatrists and clinical psychologists, but historians, social philosophers, and feminist scholars. Dr. Schafer is a most credible authority. The book has separate subject and name indexes and a reference section of about 175 books and articles. The essays are organized into three sections, each of which has a short introduction by the author. This excellent book belongs on the shelf of any library with even a minimal collection of contemporary psychoanalytic works. Schafer is arguably the leading psychoanalytic scholar of his generation. This collection of essays ably illustrates his erudition, respect for tradition, and distinctively innovative vision.
Booknews
A collection of observations by Schafer, who is kind of a philosopher with a lot of clinical experience. His essays discuss the relevance of Heinz Hartmann, conceptualization of clinical facts, postmodern feminist discourse, Freud's "Observations on Transference-Love," Freud's treatment of Elisabeth von R., humiliation and mortification, blocked introjection/blocked incorporation, the concept of enactment, aloneness in the countertranference, authority in the psychoanalytic relationship, and nonnormative sexual practices. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
