Narcissism has recently been the focus of debate among professionals, in large part due to the controversies surrounding the world of Heinz Kohut and Otto Kernberg. Yet much has been written about narcissism throughout the history of psychoanalysis and this carefully selected collection brings together the essential work on narcissism.
The book first puts forth the major theoretical formulations - self-psychology, object relations, psychodynamics - and then explores diagnostic and therapeutic applications. The book offers landmark classic and contemporary contributions by authors such as Annie Reich, Heinz Kohut, Otto Kernberg, Alice Miller, Arnold Modell, and many others.
"Innovating Traditions includes an impressive array of new studies examining how race, ethnicity, and religion permeate the lives of second-generation Asian and Latino immigrants. Taken as whole, the collection shows how diverse faith traditions transform 21st-century America, offering a nuanced understanding of ethnoreligious hybridity and racialism."-Min Zhou,
