Fruition of an Idea: Fifty Years of Psychoanalysis in New York: Edited by Martin Wangh. (New York: Int. Univ. Press, 1962. Pp. 124. $3.00.)

Review by:
W. H. Gillespie

The oldest English-speaking psycho-analytic society, the New York Psychoanalytic Society, was founded on 12 February, 1911, and its Jubilee was therefore celebrated in the spring of 1961. The thirtieth anniversary of the foundation of the New York Institute on 24 September, 1931, was honoured at the same time. This volume serves to commemorate the occasion and consists largely of the speeches made at the celebration. It opens with an historical foreword by the editor, Martin Wangh, which reminds us of the immensely impressive contributions to psycho-analysis made by the members of the Society over the last half-century. Amongst the many interesting contributions Bertram Lewin's reminiscences, Victor Rosen's discussion of the relationship of the Institute to the community, Lawrence Kubie's comments on psycho-analysis and the American scene, and Jacob Arlow's speculations about the future are outstanding. There are a number of appendices and illustrations.

The New York Psychoanalytic Society deserves our warmest congratulations on its magnificent achievements during its first fifty years and our best wishes and high expectations for the next half of the century.
