Review by:
Renato J. Almansi

This short monograph gives an overview of Melanie Klein's theories, particularly as they relate to object relations. The greater part is devoted to an orderly, if rather elementary, exposition of Klein's writings, without any attempt at critical evaluation. The reader acquainted with Melanie Klein's principal works will find nothing new in this part of the monograph.

In the last chapter the author briefly reviews the literature offering comments on and critiques of Klein's theories by non-Kleinian analysts, particularly Jones, Glover, Jacobson, Waelder, Zetzel, Winnicott and Geleerd.

In his final summary Castellazzi attempts a personal evaluation of the impact of Klein's thoughts on psychoanalytic theory and of her contributions to technique.
