A Volume (33) in the series The New Library of Psychoanalysis Published in Association with the Institute of Psycho-Analysis, London

Although there is a vast literature on aggression, comparatively little has been written on the issue of violence and even fewer clinical discussions have been published on the violent patient.

This pioneering book presents a collection of case studies on the intensive psychoanalytic treatment of patients who have committed serious acts of violence against themselves or others. Each detailed clinical account demonstrates the effectiveness of the psychoanalytic treatment and furthers our understanding of the nature of violence.

The Psychoanalytic Understanding of Violence and Suicide also contains a comprehensive review of the existing literature on aggression and violence from America, England and France, presenting major themes contained in this literature which will be of interest to all those working with violent and suicidal patients.

Reviews:

Perelberg has produced a book of the greatest topical importance to anyone involved in psychoanalysis. The review of the literature is by far the best on the subject. The various chapters of this most skillfully edited book are beautifully written, and lay the foundations for a psychoanalytic theory of violence and suicide. They also make an important contribution to a theory of technique that understands symptoms as solutions to conflicts. It should be a standard reading for many years to come. - Joseph Sandler, late Professor Emeritus in Psychoanalysis, University College, London
'This book is a joy to read, human and theoretically stimulating ... The subject is urgently topical ... Perelberg has grasped a mammoth task. She has done it magnificently. She shows a real talent for abstract thought ... It is a marvellous read which could be a standard work for many years...' - Review for the New Library of Psychoanalysis

'The clinical material is detailed, vivid, and convincing; the theoretical discussion is wide and the result is a book of great interest to anyone involved in psychoanalysis.' - Ron Britton
