Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0823680355, Paperback)Throughout almost 40 years of continual reprinting, the test of The Ego and the Mechanisms of Defense has remained intact. Like all classics, this one gains with the passage of time. It is one of the most important psychoanalytic books ever written. "In five short, closely reasoned chapters, the theory of mechanisms of ego defense is covered and illustrated. The next five chapters are devoted to case histories illustrating the use of these mechanisms in children. The chapter on 'The Ego and Id at Puberty' is probably the most brilliant description of adolescent psychology and behavior in all this much over-written field. It is worth the price of the book." -- Psychoanalytic Review. Anna Freud's lucid style -- strikingly reminiscent of her father's -- makes this book most appropriate for use as an introductory text.
