Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(8), 665–666. Reviews the book, The world technique by Margaret Lowenfeld (1979). The bulk of the book consists of three case studies of children in which Lowenfeld's use of her projective device called “the World” is described and illustrated. Additional material provided in the book includes two examples of Worlds created by adult women and brief descriptions of other kinds of projective materials used by Lowenfeld. While presumably some of the high cost of this book was necessitated by the 64 black-and white illustrations it contains, this cost and the rather fragmentary nature of much of the material will probably restrict interest in this book to those professionals already committed to Lowenfeld's technique.
