Winnicott’s review of Leo Kanner’s book Child Psychiatry. In spite of the unrivalled scale of the work, Winnicott regrets that it is entirely without originality to the psychologist and is quite out of touch with the psychology of the unconscious and with psycho-analysis and the results of child analysis as practiced and published in England. Instead, the book focuses on ‘the continuing bad external factor’, as Winnicott believes characterizes the publications of all child guidance clinics of the American pattern.
