The book The Astonishing Adolescent Upheaval in Psychoanalysis is of great interest to any clinical psychoanalyst confronted with the issue of adolescence in the 21st century. Through different perspectives, renowned psychoanalysts of contemporary adolescence present the psychoanalytic tools they use when facing clinical situations that go beyond the emotional turmoil that is expected for this period of life.

This book is brilliant, exciting, and very accessible; this is a rare combination of articles and discussions from well-known psychoanalysts from all over the world, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Italy, Switzerland, Turkey, and Uruguay. They share their complex views on adolescence, dealing in depth with psychoanalytic theory. Very interesting developments on the clinical association of isolation, violence, addiction are presented in this volume, showing the dynamics and the suffering at play from very early in life, and the economics of the drives in narcissistic organizations. Many analytic cures are presented, a rich material for thinking and education.
