Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In this book, an eminent psychoanalytic theoretician, clinician, educator, and researcher investigates the similarities and differences, and the evolving relationship between psychoanalysis and the dynamic psychotherapies. "This book is the most systematic study of the theory and practice of psychoanalytic psychotherapy that I know, and at the same time a profound and original review of leading contemporary developments of controversies in the field of psychoanalysis at large."-Otto F. Kernberg, M.D. "The author's depth of experience and intimate knowledge of both psychotherapy and psychoanalysis have led him to produce a brilliant and illuminating history of their interaction. It is a fascinating book to read and indispensable as a reference work-everyone in the field should possess and absorb this lucid and scholarly work."-Joseph Sandler, PH.D, M.D., Emeritus Professor of Psychoanalysis, University of London "Wallerstein's book stands alongside Reuben Fine's The History of Psychoanalysis as a major contribution. For informed readers." -Library Journal "Wallerstein presents a comprehensive, precise, scholarly, and well-documented historical review and study of the theory and practice of psychoanalysis and psychoanalytically oriented psychotherapy...The work includes a good review of leading contemporary developments, including attention to social constructivist paradigms, and recognizes that disputes are extant and far from being settled. An important and well-referenced book, it is the best systematic study of the theory and practice of psychoanalysis available."-Choice
