Review by:
Rex W. Speers

This book is a compilation and condensation of Hill's papers on education, dating from 1924. It reveals his extraordinary talent as a teacher of young children and as a teacher of teachers of young children. The volume describes his pioneering efforts to develop the Activity Method of teaching and provides an exquisite example of the application of psychoanalytic principles to fields other than psychoanalytic therapy. In Anna Freud's foreword she gives credit to Hill for having gone 'to the heart of the matter' in his selection of psychoanalytic theorems. In his introduction, Rudolf Ekstein notes that Hill writes in language characteristic of Freud's earlier concept of the conscious, preconscious, and unconscious.
