Overview

"Lost Childhood and the Language of Exile" is a long awaited collection of essential papers to be used as a tool not only by members of the helping professions working with people from cultures other than their own, but by all those who need to come to grips with the multidimensional and multilingual experiences of individuals and groups in our increasingly global society—and with themselves." —Edith Kurzweil

"This remarkable compendium on ‘loss’ contains essays that are amongst the most moving and deeply reflective accounts of all the different types of loss we can undergo, whether it be the loss of one’s country, one’s mother tongue, or that loss we must all endure: the loss of our childhood. Although the book does contain essays that are for the specialist reader in psychoanalysis it’s great merit resides in the diverse range of many poetically constructed essays and one hopes that "Lost Childhood" will reach readers outside the field of psychoanalysis as the editors have found writers for whom to write about loss is to bring out the very best in one’s reflections on life itself." —Christopher Bollas

"Lost Childhood and the Language of Exile" invites the reader to enter a territory which is not only multilingual but multidimensional: defined and shaped by history, politics, economy, and socio-cultural transformations. In this book we present you with stories of great diversity written by psychoanalysts, psychotherapists, writers, scientists, doctors, and historians. It gives important insights on the psychodynamic processes involved in working with, and being part of, exiled and immigrant populations.
