"Dream Reader brings together in one long-awaited volume the most significant and current psychoanalytic papers on dreams written since World War II. In this regard, it fills a great need, since until now there has been no omnibus volume of representative psychoanalytic articles on dreams or dreaming to which the analyst, psychologist, psychiatrist, or social worker could refer. Nor has there been a work to which the analyst or dream investigator could turn for a succinct current overview of the field. In addition, the editors offer valuable evaluative introductions to each of the nine sections, highlighting the nature of each article and commenting on its role in the particular section."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
