Review:

“At a time when our world badly needs thinking that takes us out of our conventional boxes, these papers bravely and thoughtfully offer new perspectives on key problems. The authors gathered together in this important volume show how terrorism, war, financial crisis, and corporate irresponsibility gain much of their intractable power by drawing on unconscious motives and working through unseen mechanisms. They also help us to understand the extraordinary demands placed on our leaders.” (Ken Eisold, award winning author of What You Dont Know You Know, and former President, ISPSO; founding faculty and former Director, Organization Program)

“This impressive book should convince even the most hardened sceptic that psychoanalysis is not dead! It clearly demonstrates that it is alive, fresh and relevant to the most challenging problems facing the world today. This book shows that systems-psychodynamic thinking, in the hands of leading academics and practitioners in our field, can be applied to situations of war and conflict, including terrorism; institutions in crisis, including the world financial crisis; and to changing ways of approaching leadership, power and authority. Both breathtaking insights and unexpected and creative ways of intervening are revealed throughout.” (Clare Huffington, organisational consultant and executive coach, President)

“This is a much needed book, giving a readable, insightful and constructive perspective on many of today's societal, political and economic ailments. It is my fervent hope that it finds a large readership in the leadership echelons of our society. Whoever reads it will have difficulty putting it down as, the content is gripping.” (Anton Obholzer, psychoanalyst and organisational consultant, formerly director)

“In the line of Freud’s Civilization and its Discontents, this book is a remarkable attempt to apply psychoanalytic knowledge to the external reality, a task which is far from being easy. Here, the quality of the various chapters and authors gathered by Halina Brunning and Mario Perini help throw an original and meaningful light on key, and sometimes dramatic, aspects of our present society. One of the merits of this book, and not the least, is the authors’ ability to articulate psychoanalysis with other social sciences.”
(Gilles Amado, Professor of Organisational Sociopsychology at HEC School of Management, Paris, a founding member of ISPSO and member)

“In a world marked by political violence and economic chaos this book offers a sustained, imaginative and critical challenge to rationalist models of understanding and intervention. Global in its range of authors and case studies, Psychoanalytic Perspectives on a Turbulent World reaffirms the continued relevance of psychoanalysis to the understanding of social, political and economic life today.” (Paul Hoggett, Professor of Politics, Director of the Centre for Psycho-Social Studies)
