"This is a unique book that brings together in a coherent and meaningful developmental sequence psychoanalytic ideas about depression, perhaps the most troublesome of and least well treated of common mental disorders. The book, beautifully illustrated with clinical vignettes, provides an essential guide for clinicians accumulating the wisdom of generations of psychoanalytic thinkers." - Peter Fonagy, Freud Memorial Professor of Psychoanalysis, University College London, UK
