Elizabeth Spillius is a greatly respected and influential psychoanalyst, particularly within the Kleinian school of thought. This book brings together a collection of Spillius's papers from across the long range of her career, showing the development of her thought. In particular, the book focuses on issues of child psychoanalysis and Kleinian thought, although it also incorporates fascinating tangents on such topics are the work of Andre Green. This book should be of great interest to anyone interested in the work of Melanie Klein or child psychoanalysis, as well as those interested in the work of Spillius herself.
