This book is another remarkable contribution to the process of assessing Freud's seminal ideas from a contemporary perspective. The editors and the authors succeed in offering to the reader a comprehensive overview, departing from different theoretical points of view, of one of Freud's most challenging concepts: constructions in analysis. Once again, eighty years after Freud's original paper, this book demonstrates the usefulness of Freud's concept and the different ways it can be seen and used. The reader will be able to get a really contemporary flavour of it, which makes the reading of this book a rewarding and stimulating experience. - Claudio Laks Eizirik, former president of the International Psychoanalytical Association
