Review by:
Margaret Little

The English edition of this book is No. 48 of the International Psycho-Analytical Library. The American edition is Vol. III of the Selected Papers of Sandor Ferenczi. The texts are identical in every way (even the spelling) except that the American edition includes an introduction by Dr. Clara Thompson who, like Dr. Balint, was a pupil of Ferenczi and closely associated with him in his work. The print is slightly smaller in the English edition, which makes the layout a little more attractive, and the text is printed on better paper.

The Editor's note describes the papers as falling into three groups: (a) papers written after Further Contributions to the Theory and Technique of Psycho-Analysis, (b) posthumous papers, notes and fragments, and (c) papers which were omitted from Further Contributions. This volume completes the publication in book form in English of all Ferenczi's important papers. What has been omitted is of slight interest from the point of view of psycho-analysis except for the as yet unpublished correspondence with Freud and the scientific diary which he kept during the last year of his life.

There is a very comprehensive bibliography which 'enumerates in chronological order all Ferenczi's papers published in English, giving in each case the volume and page numbers where the paper may be found', and including references for the obituaries and appreciations of Ferenczi.

The index, equally comprehensive, also covers all books and papers by Ferenczi published in English.
