"These extraordinary two volumes of material by and about Fairbairn are a virtual treasure trove for anyone at all interested in the history of psychoanalytic ideas...They contain a dazzling array of different sorts of wonders: hard-to-find articles previously published in journals many decades ago, lectures on many subjects, talks for various occasions, Fairbairn's actual lecture notes, letters, journal notes to himself, reviews of important volumes by other authors, even Fairbairn's original responses to Glover's famous questionnaire about clinical practice. The material is well set into an illuminating historical and conceptual context by the editors, with a rich knowledge of both Fairbairn and British psychoanalysis." - Stephen Mitchell, dust jacket blurb.
