'This book's modest title fails to convey the uniquely erudite, creative and wide-ranging nature of its contents. In this collection of lectures and essays by Malcolm Pines, a distinguished British psychiatrist, psychoanalyst and group therapist, all mental health professionals will find an amalgam of cogent philosophical, sociological, historical and psychological insights amassed over a period of four decades.'

- from the Foreword by Saul Scheidlinger

For many, Malcolm Pines personifies the institution of group analysis. He was one of the founders of the Group Analytic Society and the Institute of Group Analysis, and in this selection of his papers the depth of his mastery of social science, enriched with his knowledge of literature and philosophy, is clear. The collection includes work on the development of the psychoanalytic movement, its historical context, and the relationship of dynamic psychotherapy to psychoanalysis; and also focuses on mirroring, child development and healing.
