Reviews and Endorsements

'I am delighted to welcome and introduce Harry Karnac's careful bibliography of works to date that have made use of the plethora of ideas introduced into the psychoanalytic lexicon by Donald Woods Winnicott. This is the core work. All serious Winnicott scholars will find it essential as a starting point for reference. Since Winnicott's ideas tangle with many other fields, this compilation of references is the touchstone for many others in whatever areas they are engaged. Just as in his lifetime Winnicott regularly and frequently spoke to enormous numbers of different, not only professional audiences, so, after his death, his writings continue to engage all manner of people.

'Winnicott's work, no less than Freud's, has applications in, spans and influences "Nothing Short of Everything" as he wanted to title his autobiography. Accordingly, his work has been discovered and influenced people in many fields of human endeavour. Everything is not yet available of the work of a man who is undoubtedly amongst the most significant heirs to the mantle of Freud [but] already Harry Karnac has listed more than 1200 articles, books and reviews of relevant derivative scholarship interest. Until the unopened archives become available no final evaluation of Winnicott's work will be possible ... There is no intention here to annotate or provide a critical bibliography, nor to reproduce summaries or abstracts of articles, nor to analyse the items in any depth ... This bibliography has been fascinating reading for me for whom it is essential, as I am confident it will be for many, many others now and in years to come.'
- Judith Issroff, from the Foreword
