A Woman's Unconscious Use Of Her Body. By Dinora Pines, M.D. New Haven/London: Yale University Press, 1994. 243 pp.

Review by:
Nancy Kulish

This book is a collection of twelve papers written between 1972 and the present, most, but not all, of which have been previously published. In these papers Pines writes about her clinical work with dozens of female patients—from adolescents to the elderly, from hospitalized patients with skin disorders to survivors of the Holocaust —and about her ideas on subjects ranging from promiscuity and pregnancy to infidelity. Assembled in this way, the collection presents a clear and moving picture of a fine clinician's work and thinking.
