Never previously published - now edited and annotated for a contemporary readership by Linda Hopkins, a leading authority on Masud Kahn.

Masud Khan (1924-1989), was an eminent and, ultimately, scandalous British psychoanalyst who trained and practised in London during an important period in the development of psychoanalysis. From August 1967 to March 1980, he wrote his 39 volume Work Books, a diary that contains observations and reflections on his own life, the world of psychoanalysis, his evolving theoretical formulations, Western culture, and the turbulent social and political developments of the time.

Readers will find fascinating entries on his psychoanalyst, colleague and mentor Donald Winnicott, his psychoanalyst during the latter part of his life--Anna Freud, and other well-known analysts of the period, along with leaders in the world of culture and the arts such as Julie Andrews, the Redgraves and Henri Cartier- Bresson.
