Review by:
Batya Friesel

Psychoanalysis on the Move is a collection of fifteen articles by leading psychoanalytic thinkers of different traditions from around the world. It was intended to serve as a comprehensive and accessible overview of Joseph Sandler's contribution of to the development of psychoanalysis. In over forty years of intensive psychoanalytic practice and theorizing, Sandler produced a tremendous volume of writings. His influence was felt also in a long career of teaching in clinical and academic forums, as well as in a variety of administrative roles, both in England and abroad, in which he actively worked for the advancement of psychoanalysis. In the light of Sandler's unexpected death in October 1998, the book now also stands as a tribute to his memory.

Sandler's psychoanalytic work has had a decisive impact both on clinical theory and metapsychology. Many of his clinical concepts, particularly “role-responsiveness” and “the background of safety,” have been integrated into the mainstream of psychoanalytic theory, and his metapsychological works have served as a basis for the study of the foundations and structure of Freud's thought, as well as those of later, neo-Freudian thinking. His attempts to clarify, sharpen, and integrate the basic concepts and formulations of psychoanalysis are a striking feature of his work. Psychoanalysis on the Move brings to the fore not only the continuing relevance of Sandler's innovations and conceptualizations, but in a much more subtle way points also, as the title perhaps implies, to the evolution of psychoanalytic thinking and the part Sandler has played in it.
