Reviews and Endorsements

Melanie Klein was probably the most controversial and influential figure that has yet appeared on the British psychoanalytic scene. She left Germany in 1926 and settled in London where she soon quarreled with Anna Freud. Klein pioneered the psychoanalysis of children and applied her insights on the infantile origins of unconscious drives to adult analysis. Her relationship with her own children was highly troubled.

In this critical yet sympathetic book Maria Likierman of the Tavistock clinic assesses the work, life and lasting influence of this brilliant figure. Klein has been quoted but she has never, until Likierman's book been properly read. This book reveals with patient lucidity just what is fascinating about Klein as a psychoanalytic theorist.Likierman's Klein is a Klein for a new generation of readers. - Adam Phillips, author of On Kissing, Tickling and Being Bored
