The social unconscious and its manifestations in group analysis are the focus of this important new book of Earl Hopper's selected papers. Drawing on sociology, psychoanalysis and group analysis, he argues that groups and their participants are constrained unconsciously by social, cultural and political facts and forces. These hypotheses are illustrated with clinical vignettes concerning anti-Semitism, racism, the politics of class and gender, and the effects of rapid social change. Transference and countertransference processes are examined both vividly and honestly. Theoretically generative and clinically astute, this book will be of value to both analysts and their students.

Foreword, Malcolm Pines. Acknowledgements. Preface. 1. Some Effects of Supervisory Style: A Sociological Analysis. 2. A Sociological View of Large Groups, with Anne Weyman. 3. 'Report on the Large Group' of the Survivor Syndrome Workshop (1979), with Lionel Kreeger. 4. 'Overview' of the Survivor Syndrome Workshop (1979), with Caroline Garland. 5. The Problem of Context in Group-Analytic Psychotherapy: A Clinical Illustration and a Brief Theoretical Discussion. 6. The Social Unconscious in Clinical Work. 7. Wounded Bird: A Study of the Social Unconscious and Countertransference. 8. On the Nature of Hope in Psychoanalysis and Group Analysis. Index.
