Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1998, Vol 43(11), 784-785. Review of book: “Psychoanalytic perspectives on developmental psychology,” edited by Robert F. Bornstein and Joseph M. Masling (see record 1996-98933-000). Demanding rigor of thought and demonstrating the range of ideas in current psychoanalysis, this book could benefit advanced graduate students. For those of us already in the field, it invites the reader to debate various positions on each topic. It accomplishes the goal of showing the enrichment of general personality theory that comes from sound research of psychoanalytic principles. As a bonus, it offers critical overviews of several important topics, making it an excellent sourcebook as well. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
