Review by:
Theodore L. Dorpat, M.D.

This book was published with the help of many friends and pupils on the occasion of Jeanne Lampl-de Groot's 90th birthday. Over twenty years ago, articles by Lampl-de Groot that had already been published were collected in The Development of the Mind. For many years, that book was almost unobtainable. One purpose of the present volume is to put together not only those writings included in the earlier volume, but also her later publications.

This volume includes 47 different articles published between 1927 and 1983. Six were published before World War II. The majority of her publications first appeared in English and American journals, though some were originally published in Dutch and German periodicals. Her lively interest and understanding of child development is shown in 11 articles previously published in the Psychoanalytic Study of the Child.

This reviewer found the author's comments about the early history of psychoanalysis among the most interesting parts of the entire book. Jeanne Lampl-de Groot belongs to a small but prominent group of psychoanalysts who served their apprenticeship in Vienna in the 'twenties. As Anna Freud explains in her preface,

The members of this group were fortunate in their professional career in several respects.
