Review by:
Giuseppina Antinucci-Mark

The Higher Education Network for Research and Information on Psychoanalysis is an organisation that was founded in 1988 to provide a forum for the discussion and exchange of psychoanalytic ideas in Britain and abroad. In the academic year 1994-95 THERIP arranged a series of panel discussions on topics addressed by Kleinian and Lacanian analysts, which have been edited for this collection. The format of these dialogues centres around the presentation of two papers, followed by a wider discussion. The lectures cover the following topics: child analysis, interpretation and technique, phantasy, sexuality, countertransference and the unconscious, with contributions by Margaret Rustin, Bice Benvenuto, Catalina Bronstein, Bernard Burgoyne, Robert Young. Darian Leader, Jane Temperley, Dany Nobus, Robert Hinshelwood, Vicente Palomera, Robin Anderson and Filip Geerardyn.

A brief interview with Donald Meltzer and a lucid, systematic and disciplined paper entitled ‘Rethinking Kleinian interpretation: what difference does it make?’ conclude this collection.

As is often the case with compilations, it is an arduous task to give the reader a synthetic and critical account of the book. Therefore I can only focus on some of the papers in some detail. Nevertheless, wanting to give an impressionistic view of the structure of the papers, I would say that the Kleinian writers follow a format that the British readers will find familiar, where a theoretical exposition is followed by a brief review and finally some observational or clinical material is given to support the theory.
