Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Throughout they give a measured, critical appraisal of psychoanalytic thought and practice; both its strengths and weaknesses ... I found it an extremely helpful exposition of what analysts now think, why they think it, and what they now do as a result. - British Association of Counselling Practice

This extensively researched and usefully referenced book deserves the place it aspires to as an introductory text. - International Journal of Psycho-analysis
