Object Relations Theory and Clinical Psychoanalysis is a collection of Kernberg's papers published or presented during the period from 1966 to 1975, with some new material included as well.
Kernberg is nonpareil in the methodical and systematic nature of his approach. He is always clear and explicit, distinguishes data from inference and speculation from observation, and addresses himself to issues of agreement and validation. It is this scrupulous lucidity of presentation that makes him as impossible to ignore--even when one thinks him wrong--as he is pleasurable to read. . . . Object-Relations Theory and Clinical Psychoanalysis is a must for all psychoanalysts who are concerned with current issues of psychoanalytic theory and technique.--Arnold D. Richards M.D., editor, Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Assocation
