An invaluable compilation of D.W. Winnicott's papers, talks, letters and lectures between 1930 and 1970, centred on the theme of the relationship between antisocial behaviour, or more chronically delinquency, and childhood experiences of deprivation. Linking passages by the editors set the historical context for four sections focusing on children under stress, the nature and origin of antisocial tendency, the practical management of difficult children, and individual therapy with the antisocial personality.

'Winnicott was a healer with the qualities of a parent, a magician, a teacher, a poet and a friend. The editors of this book have done a great service in collecting and arranging papers dating from the experiences of the evacuation in the Second World War up to some of Winnicott's continued explorations of his own philosophy
