by Irwin Z. Hoffman, Ph.D.
in Contemporary psychoanalysis in America: leading analysts present their work

In this sweeping overview of current psychoanalytic thinking, thirty of America's foremost psychoanalysts have chosen what they consider their most significant papers-key writings that reconstruct the theoretical framework of psychoanalysis and our understanding of the therapeutic situation. "Contemporary Psychoanalysis in America" is a "best of the best" volume-cutting-edge work that covers the systematization of theory, including its application to problems of development and culture.
