Review by:
Judith Kestenberg

Anna Freud with her usual simplicity and clarity of style, illuminates the unique contribution of psychoanalysis to research in human development.

After Freud's discoveries concerning the genesis of personality, Anna Freud persistently focused her attention on development. She devised a method of child analysis, central to which is the recognition that children are not miniature adults.
