The Borderline Patient. Emerging Concepts in Diagnosis, Psychodynamics, and Treatment. Volumes 1 & 2: Edited by James S. Grotstein, Marion F. Solomon, and Joan A. Lang. Hillsdale, NJ: The Analytic Press, 1987. 444 pp., 330 pp.

Review by:
Warren H. Goodman

This ambitious two-volume compendium contains thirty-six chapters written by some of the outstanding contributors to the literature on the borderline patient. The authors represent a diverse spectrum of opinion. They include individuals who are widely published and well known: L. Bryce Boyer, Peter L. Giovacchini, James Grotstein, Otto Kernberg, Joseph Lichtenberg, Jerome Oremland, Harold Searles, James Masterson, William Meissner, Mortimer Ostow, Michael Stone, Marian Tolpin, Robert Stolorow, Vamik Volkan, etc. The chapters cover diagnosis, psychodynamic and developmental formulations, biological and genetic formulations, psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy, and, finally, alternative approaches to treatment. There are comprehensive references at the end of each essay, as well as excellent subject and author indexes at the end of each volume. There are also orienting introductions to each part by the editors.
