In a review of another book, I indicated why psychoanalysts should be concerned about the quality of new psychiatric textbooks. The reasons are even more pertinent now. The mushrooming community mental health movement reveals increasing hostility toward psychoanalysis. There is an even more pervasive trend toward attenuation and dilution of psychiatry and psychotherapy which can affect the development of psychoanalysis adversely, if for no other reason than that psychiatry and psychoanalysis are not differentiated in the public mind. The credo, Everybody a Mental Health Worker, has been all but formulated in much current teaching and writing.
