D.W.Winnicott was one of the giants of child psychiatry and psychoanalysis. He argued eloquently for an increased sensitivity to children, their development and their needs. Deprivation and Delinquency is an invaluable collection of his work on the theme of the relationship between antisocial behaviour, or more chronically delinquency, and childhood experiences of deprivation. Winnicott examines children under stress, the nature and origin of antisocial tendency and the practical management of difficult children issues which have once again exploded onto the social agenda.
