Reviews and Endorsements

'Negotiating difference, in gender and generation, has been a cornerstone of psychoanalytic thinking. This important and courageous new book opens up a timely exploration of other differences that pop up in the consulting room around race, immigration status, criminality, financial status, pregnancy, illness, disability, aging and death etc. without reducing them to the more familiar. It is clinically detailed, which allows a point of entry into specific debates about how to understand and negotiate these differences in the service of the therapeutic task. More general issues facing our profession in an increasingly diverse and changing world are addressed equally boldly. It deserves to be read by student and experienced practitioner alike.'
- M. Fakhry Davids, Member, Institute of Psychoanalysis, London
