The Ferenczi-Jones correspondence presented here is an important document of the early history of psychoanalysis. It spans more than two decades, and addresses many of the relevant issues of the psychoanalytic movement between 1911-1933, such as Freud's relation to Stekel, Adler and Jung; the First World War, the debates of the 1920s regarding the theoretical and technical ideas of Rank and Ferenczi; problems of leadership, structure, and finding a center for the psychoanalytical movement; as well as issues related to telepathy and lay analysis. It includes thirty-seven letters and six postcards, as well as original documents waiting to be found for eight decades; these belong to the "private", personal history of psychoanalysis and help to decode diverse aspects of the experience preserved in these documentary memories of former generations. Perhaps the most interesting aspect of this correspondence is how it allows us to build up a far more nuanced picture of the development of an extraordinary relationship between Ferenczi and Jones. It could hardly be termed harmonious, and was not devoid of rivalry and jealousy, sometimes even of hidden passion and outright hostility. Nevertheless, friendship, sympathy, collegiality and readiness for cooperation were just as important for Ferenczi and Jones as rivalry, mistrust and suspicion. This volume celebrates the 100th anniversary of the foundation in 1913 of both the British and the Hungarian Psychoanalytical Societies.

Reviews and Endorsements:

"What a most welcome addition to the Freud-Ferenczi correspondence! These letters from Ferenczi to Jones with three surviving letters from Jones to Ferenczi started in 1911 and continued until Ferenczi’s death in 1933. They give the reader a vivid insight in the seriousness, excitement and engagement of these two men in the new discoveries in psychoanalytic theory and technique. But what is exceptional is that these letters which reveal increasing misunderstandings and tensions between the correspondents also mirror the conflicts, quarrels and increasing mistrust which were present amongst the members of the international community close to Freud. These letters should be a must for all those who are interested in the early days of psychoanalysis."
