This book features contributions from twenty six leading experts that survey the theoretical, historical, methodological, empirical, and clinical aspects of repression and the repressive personality style, from both psychoanalytic and cognitive psychological perspectives.
"Rarely does a volume present contributions on a controversial topic from such distinguished clinicians and experimentalists . . . . There is something of interest in this volume for almost anyone involved in experimental cognitive psychology and psychiatry."--Carroll E. Izard, "Contemporary Psychology"
"The concept of repression is the cornerstone of psychoanalytic theory. . . . This is a delightful book, unusually well-written. . . . Recommended."--"Choice"
"Readable, thorough, wide ranging and consistently interesting. . . . A testament to the continuing power of psychodynamic ideas when faced with individual psychopathology."--Sue Llewelyn, "Psychologist"
"Singer has brought together some of the best empirical research in the areas of unconscious mental activity and repression--that is at once interdisciplinary and scholarly."--Howard D. Lerner, "International Review of Psycho-analysis"
"A rich reference, replete with summaries and citations, covering a variety of topics related to the psychology of repression and dissociation. . . . A thoughtful, detailed and eclectic discussion of the scientific and theoretical basis of repression and dissociation."--Steven Lazrove, M.D., "American Journal of Psychiatry"
