Abstract

New Penguin Modern Classics edition. Anna Freud was a pioneer in child analysis; in the treatment of those traumatized by early separation from their parents; and in the application of psychoanalytic insights to education and institutional care. She also wrote extensively on all these themes. This superb anthology starts with substantial extracts from her classic The Ego and the Mechanisms of Defence, perhaps the first crucial contribution to psychoanalytic theory elaborated by someone other than Sigmund Freud. There follow many fundamental papers on both normal and pathological child development, and then shorter sections on adolescence and analytical technique. An extensive introduction and linking passages weave the selected writings together to make this the definitive overview of Anna Freud's entire career.
