Opening with updated, detailed clinical vignettes and case presentations, Altman greatly expands his section on race, both in psychoanalysis and the larger social world, and proffers a more fluid view of its structure. A brand new section examines the impact of local and global events outside of the public clinic on the clinical work itself and the socioeconomic categories of its patients, including group dynamics in child and adolescent psychotherapeutic interventions, APA's relationship to CIA interrogation practices, and psychoanalytic views on war and suicide bombing. Ranging from the day-to-day work in a public clinic in the South Bronx to considerations of events far outside the clinic's doors (but closer than one might think), this book is a timely revision of a groundbreaking work in psychoanalytic literature, expanding the import of psychoanalysis from the centers of analytical thought to the margins of clinical need.
