Review by:
Stanley L. Olinick

This is a giant of a book. Holland has successfully undertaken the task of writing a psychoanalytic psychology of identity. In it, he cuts through the vulgarized acceptance of that concept by pop culture, taking it as a unifier of personality, a cybernetic set of themes and variations. In doing so, he synthesizes data from clinical psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic theory, from neurophysiology, anthropology, and experimental psychology. He exemplifies his points through the lives of Shaw, Little Hans (Herbert Graf), Fitzgerald, and others.
