Editorial Reviews

"Klein has been quoted but she has never, until Likierman's book been properly read. This book reveals with patient lucidity just what is fascinating about Klein as a psychoanalytic theorist. It recovers her work, in other words, from the sentimentality and moralism in which her so-called followers have buried her. Likierman's Klein is a Klein for a new generation of readers."-Adam Phillips, author of On Kissing, Tickling and Being Bored
