In this important book, experts in the field survey current psychoanalytic theory, discussing its principles, technical aspects, clinical phenomena, and applications. The book is both an introduction to and a statement of mainstream American psychoanalysis today and will be a standard reference for psychoanalytic trainees, authors, and teachers.
The book has been designed as a companion volume to Psychoanalytic Terms and Concepts, a glossary edited by Drs. Moore and Fine under the auspices of the American Psychoanalytic Association.

Burness E. Moore, M.D., is clinical professor of psychiatry at the Emory University School of Medicine and training and supervising analyst emeritus at the Emory University Psychoanalytic Institute. He is a former president of the American Psychoanalytic Association and the New York Psychoanalytic Institute. The late Bernard D. Fine, M.D., was clinical associate professor of psychiatry at the New York University College of Medicine.
In this authoritative compendium, 50 contributors define and explicate clinical and theoretical concepts from the legacy of Sigmund Freud. More complete than the American Psychoanalytic Association's Psychoanalytic Terms and Concepts (Yale, 1990), by the same editors, this volume provides a "comprehensive view of mainstream psychoanalysis." Although not an official APA publication, it presents established positions with historical context and some attention to controversy, e.g., in Jon Meyers's chapter on homosexuality. Non-Freudian dream theory gets short shrift, as does the controversial Jacques Lacan. A solid reference, essential for psychoanalysts and useful for interested general readers, this is more a monument for the present and past than a guide to the future.?E. James Lieberman, George Washington Univ. Sch. of Medicine, Washington, D.C.
