Freud's Technique Papers: A Contemporary Perspective: By Steven J. Ellman. Northvale. New Jersey: Jason Aronson. 1991. Pp. 381.

Review by:
Charles Hanly

However useful it is for institute teaching purposes—and Ellman's Freud's Technique Papers: A Contemporary Perspective will prove to be very useful indeed as a teaching and learning resource—one might not be expected to greet a new collection of Freud's technical papers with excitement. But Ellman's Freud's Technique Papers is much more than such a collection. The second part of the title, A Contemporary Perspective, promises and the book delivers a scholarly, stimulating comparative analysis of the sometimes conflicting technical recommendations of three major contemporary American clinicians—Brenner, Gill and Kohut—the reasons for them and their relation to Freud's views.

Although the book divides into sections of two parts, the first composed of Freud's papers on some aspect of technique and the second on the comparison of the views of Brenner, Gill and Kohut on the same technical issues, a continuous comparative analysis binds the two parts of each section together.
