4.0 out of 5 stars good, but sure you know what your getting, December 22, 2008
By 
This review is from: The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Psychoanalysis (Hardcover)
This so called 'textbook' is by no mean a textbook in the full sense of the word. if your buying it hoping to learn the basics and then go forward from there- forget about it. the discussions are pretty thick with jargon from page 1. a better bet is to read another introduction book first before going into this one.
also, this book should be titled 'textbook of AMERICAN psychoanalysis' as it features very little about psychoanalysis in other parts of the world. the chapters dealing with these subjects are more of an activity roster and less a theoretical survey.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review of "Textbook of Psychoanalysis", December 30, 2008
By 
This review is from: The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Psychoanalysis (Hardcover)
This is an AMAZINGLY complete and organized textbook of psychoanalysis. Psychoanalysis had a beginning with Sigmund Freud, so an historical element enters every approach to presenting psychoanalysis to students, but this book gracefully avoids being limited to this. The authors have approached the diversity of psychoanalytic metapsychology: the many currant points-of-view on how the mind develops structure, in relationships, a sense of self and of agency. The authors have included chapters on analytic theory and treatment from geographic areas not well known to most American analysts. It is a book that students and analysts at all levels of training may learn from and a wonderful resource for those who teach psychoanalysis.
