Skills, Outlooks and Passions: A Psychoanalytic Contribution to the Study of Politics. By A. F. Davies. Cambridge University Press, 1980. Pp. 522.

Review by:
Isabel Menzies Lyth

This book sets out to show the contribution psychoanalysis can make to the study of politics. The extent to which it is successful in doing this varies greatly in different parts of the book. The psychoanalytic approach shows most clearly in the first section, 'Skills' which leans heavily on the work of Harold D. Lasswell with extensive references to other psychoanalysts such as Jaques, some of whom are also social scientists.
