In this review, Winnicott judges this short work as valuable to child psychiatry for those who enjoy new ideas but who wish their theoretical contributions to relate to the Freudian basis of their work. The author, in Winnicott’s view, shows how Freud’s theory led to reconstructions of childhood and infancy, and of how work with children further enriched the theory derived from the analysis of neurotic adults. However, Winnicott believes that Glover’s dislike of Klein’s ideas colours his work and spoils this otherwise excellent booklet.
