'This excellent volume presents an extraordinary view of the living contributions of Anna Freud and of the Anna Freud Centre. A most interesting group of recollections in the first section sets the stage for a dozen rich, vivid case reports of present-day child and adolescent psychoanalysis that create a powerful demonstration of the Anna Freud Tradition. Their clinical immediacy and their clarity of explanation form a considerable part of that tradition. A number of additional, elegant accounts of clinical applications round out the picture of Anna Freud's continuing influence on the treatment of children. A marvellous book that will reward close reading.' Anton O.
