Review by:
Roy K. Lilleskov

The Psychoanalytic Study of the Child has been published as an annual since 1945. It rapidly became one of the obligatory journals for a psychoanalyst. It took its honoured place in the bookcase alongside the Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association, the International Journal of Psycho-Analysis and the Psychoanalytic Quarterly. The publication of a new volume is always an exciting event, and not only for child analysts. Its articles bring the data of child analysis and psychoanalytically oriented developmental studies to bear on many issues of general psychoanalytic theory and practice. They have spearheaded and recorded the shift from a genetic point of view, with its frequent retrospective search for antecedents of pathology, to a developmental point of view, with its emphasis on transformations.

This volume continues in that tradition. Under the heading 'Theoretical and clinical problems of development' there are nine papers. The first two of these stress the role of the mother-infant interaction in the development of ego functions.
