about

This book constitutes an expansion of the highly esteemed Glossary of the American Psychoanalytic Association into a mini-encyclopedia that presents both historical and current meanings of the most widely accepted psychoanalytic terms and concepts. The format has been revised, new concepts and terms have been added, and previous definitions have been clarified and updated.

 

"Anyone learning, teaching, or writing about psychoanalysis will find [this book] of uncommon usefulness and value. . . . The editing is superb, . . . the text [is] clear and concise, . . . jargon [has been] minimized, . . . and qualifiers avoid dogmatism.

If one is building a personal psychoanalytic library, this should head the list of what to purchase next."—William D. Jeffrey, Bulletin of the Psychoanalytic Association of New York
