PSYCHOANALYSIS—A GENERAL PSYCHOLOGY: ESSAYS IN HONOR OF HEINZ HARTMANN. Edited by Rudolph M. Loewenstein, Lottie M. Newman, Max Schur, and Albert J. Solnit. New York: International Universities Press, 1966, xii + 684 pp., $15.00.

A poetic prologue by one of his sons introduces this Festschrift in honor of Heinz Hartmann. The book is divided into six parts. Part I, "The Man and His Work," is opened by a biographical essay written by the Eisslers, and continues with two additional papers, by Anna Freud and by John Benjamin, evaluating Hartmann's work from 1939 to the present. Part II, "History of Psychoanalysis," with papers by Max Schur and Maurits Katan, takes up early historical aspects of psychoanalysis and describes the precursors of the concept of the death instinct. The authors of the seven papers in Part III, "Aspects of Normal and Pathological Development," are Provence, Spitz, Mahler, Solnit, Lustman, Tartakoff, and Grete Bibring. Part IV, "Contributions to Psychoanalytic Theory," whose authors are Stein, Loewenstein, Spiegel, Lampl-de Groot, Frosch, George Klein, Brenner, and Lagache, takes up various aspects of the superego, anxiety, adaptation, reality constancy, memory, repression, and the nature of psychoanalysis as a science. Part V, "Clinical Problems," has papers by Helene Deutsch on postraumatic amnesias, Arlow on depersonalization and derealization, Beres on superego and depression, and Edith Jacobson on the differentiation between schizophrenia and depression. Part VI, "Correlations and applications of Psychoanalysis," has a paper by Ernest Hartmann on free will, one by Fisher on dreaming and sexuality, Reiser on psychosomatic disorders, Herbert Weiner on ego autonomy, Erikson on ritualization, Jahoda on work, Victor Rosen on ego deviations, and Greenacre on nonsense. There is a bibliography of Hartmann's works.

THE COMPLETE INTRODUCTORY LECTURES ON PSYCHOANALYSIS. By Sigmund Freud. Translated and edited by James Strachey, New York: W. W. Norton & Company, 1966, 690 pp., $12.50.

This marks the first publication in one volume of both sets of Introductory Lectures, the first having been published in 1917 and the second in 1932. In his note, the translator remarks that Freud considered that the two sets belonged together, for he numbered both series consecutively.
