Review by:
William F. Murphy

This is the second volume of a vast undertaking which has been adequately reviewed before as to its scope and purpose. All that was said concerning Volume I in general applies equally to Volume II.

Forty-nine analysts have here collaborated to review publications of psychoanalytic interest that appeared in 1951. The substance of two hundred seventy-six articles from twenty-five journals, plus extracts from forty-two books, is integrated in a lucid manner with creditable respect for continuity. Fourteen other books are presented in condensed form. The various subjects include history, critique, methodology, development, ego psychology, clinical studies, dreams, child analysis, psychosomatic medicine, psychotherapy, and the application of psychoanalysis to other fields of knowledge. The book is adequately cross-indexed.

Few analysts have the time or energy to keep up with the flood of clinical, theoretical, and speculative papers and books of interest to them that have appeared yearly since World War II, and especially during the past five or six years. Few have time or inclination to keep abreast of the literature of psychiatry and such other sciences allied to psychoanalysis as anthropology and sociology. The Annual Survey will be an aid to those who fear they will miss a stimulating article and to those who confine their reading to the three major psychoanalytic publications. It is therefore regrettable that there is no chapter dealing with what is going on in clinical, experimental, and theoretical psychology, and in the pseudoanalytic splinter groups that, to paraphrase Freud, have removed their pots from our fire. An acquaintance with the fallacies that motivate such groups would possibly be of more interest than the condensed version of some books.
