Review by:
Austin Silber

This volume is divided into four parts. Part I consists of ten contributions that broaden our knowledge of child development. Part II contains five papers that originally were contributions to psychoanalytic symposia. Part III consists of a most important study guide to Sigmund Freud's writings. It provides a balanced perspective from which to organize, appraise, highlight, and present to the analytic novice the basic contributions of Sigmund Freud. Part IV involves the application of psychoanalysis to education, pediatrics, and nursery schools, together with some brief personal reminiscences and Introductions written for several books. Many of the contributions included in the book have not been published in English before.

What emerges from a close reading of these papers is the realization that Anna Freud, following in the tradition of her conquistador father, was herself an innovator and conservator of psychoanalysis.
