Dr. Ruitenbeek introduces this collection with an orienting comment on Freud and his students (""Disciples might be a more apt term"") who gathered with the conviction that they were making history as well as sharing an interest. He cites the areas in which the followers of Freud made their particular contributions; the selections here generally but do not always follow the subject in consequence. Represented are: Ferenczi, Abraham, Sachs, Hitschmann, Marie Bonaparte, Melanie Klein, Anna Freud, Helene Deutsch, Franz Alexander, A.A. Brill, and others. Notably missing are the dissidents: Adler, Jung, Rank. The essays are chosen to make clear current relevance and to indicate that despite ""fruitless quarreling,"" the group around Freud"" had time for significant work."" Primarily professional in interest and designation.
