Review by:
Liselotte Bendix Stern

The impatiently awaited publication of the Subject Index, Volume XIV of Grinstein's Index of Psychoanalytic Writings, has completed the third series of this bibliographic reference work, bringing the publication data of the psychoanalytic literature up to 1969. An earlier review of the first two series, covering the literature from 1873 to 1959, went into considerable detail to explain how to use this reference tool, and Dr. George Klumpner's excellent review and evaluation of the entire series appeared in 1975. The present review will therefore be limited mainly to pointing out the divergencies from the earlier series, the most pertinent bibliographical additions, and the utilization of modern reference tools and techniques.

Besides bringing the Index up to date through 1969, the new volumes include corrections of errors appearing in the entire series. Because of budgetary considerations and the glut of publications in allied fields, modification of the scope of the earlier series was necessary. Various previously contacted professional groups in peripheral fields, such as the American Psychological Association and the Association of the National Academy of Science, had to be omitted. It was also necessary to omit follow-up letters. Thus the number of replies was considerably lower than in the first two series: 39% for the present project, 72% in the earlier projects.
