Format: Paperback
Dr. Hinshelwood, one of the world's leading proponents of Kleinian psychoanalysis, has produced an interesting and readable synopsis of the work of the noted psychoanalyst, Melanie Klein.

Often difficult to understand, Mrs. Klein's work is centred on the intrapsychic aspects of human development. This slim volume allows the reader an opportunity to appreciate some of the more complex aspects of Kleinian thought.

Having digested Dr. Hinshelwood's excellent text entitled "Clinical Klein", I found the visual depictions in "Introducing Melanie Klein" of some of the same cases described in his other work to be helpful and clarifying.

I would recommend any interested reader pick up both volumes and use the "Introducing..." book as a quick reference guide to the "Clinical..." text.

This is an excellent, clear, and user-friendly introduction to the life and work of the psychoanalyst Melanie Klein. Although I knew a little about the subject to begin with, I would guess that this book would be understandable by anyone without any prior knowledge. My only cavil is that it would be nice to have bit more textual content for the price. Nevertheless, very highly recommended.

Needed desperately some clarity and this provided it. It became less flowing towards the end with the theory and life events converging unhelpfully.

If you are new to study psychology or psychotherapy/counselling this book provides an easy introduction to the complex world of a difficult lady who had to fight for her right to be heard in the male dominated world that was psychoanalysis.
As co-author I may appear biased but I've only ever received £30 in royalties, my bias is not financially driven (publisher is making the money)

The graphics enhance the text and bring the content alive.
This whistlestop tour through Klein, her life and her work would be great for anyone new to Klein, or for a refreshing of her ideas.
A pioneer.

A very accessible little read which gives quite an overview of her often baffling theories and helps to make them somewhat more understandable

Good enough publication. Whether or not it will persuade any in the theories and practice of Klein, not sure.
