Review by:
Ernst Kris

In this second edition of his comprehensive and brilliantly written textbook the author (who derives many of his basic views on human relations from the master mind of American social psychology, George Herbert Mead) has used many concepts of psychoanalysis. He does so with skill and assuredness. Psychoanalysts, who in reading this book may find much valuable information, should be stimulated by it less to criticism of the author than to self-criticism. I am inclined to think that Young might have referred more consistently to the clinical findings of psychoanalysis, had they been accessible in better, i.e. less ambiguous, formulations.
