Object and Self: A Developmental Approach. Essays in Honor of Edith Jacobson: Edited by Saul Tuttman, Carole Kaye, and Muriel Zimmerman. New York: International Universities Press, Inc., 1981. 548 pp.

Review by:
Stuart S. Asch

The goal of this volume is twofold: to present a survey of Edith Jacobson's work and to provide a selection of new essays on object relations theory.

The first section of the book easily justifies the editors' initial aim by providing an excellent review of Jacobson's contributions. The papers clearly illustrate the historical influence of her ideas upon the current interest in object relations theory. This is the best part of the volume. Jacobson's meticulous observations and her development of them into theory generated a series of outstanding psychoanalytic writings over a twenty-five-year period.
