The papers are arranged into four groups: the analysis of psychotic patients, projective identification, on thinking, and pathalogical organisation.

Industry Reviews

"Elizabeth Spillius cannot be too warmly congratulated. Readers who are not very familiar with recent Kleinian work will find the papers she has selected extremely informative and in virtually every case impressive. The outstanding editorial work is manifested, first in the well-judged choice of papers, secondly and above all in the superb commentaries ... Elizabeth Spillius is a splendid exponent of her school and the two volumes she has so excellently edited must be thoroughly recommended." - William Gillerpies, The International Journal of Psychoanalysis

"An excellent text that identifies all the salient aspects of Kleinian Theory. Well written concise yet comprehensive. Simplifies complex concepts. Excellent student purchase." - Alf Thompson, Counselling, Salford FE College
