Psychoanalytic Ideas book series

The Psychoanalytic Ideas book series is aimed at practising psychoanalysts and psychotherapists, researchers, students and the general public.

These are short  books, which are designed to give a succinct summary of their subject. They are edited by psychoanalysts and psychotherapists with extensive knowledge and experience in their fields. The series covers a wide range of psychoanalytic subjects such as unconscious phantasy, symbolization, time and memory and the nature of psychic reality.

Other books in this series offer psychoanalytic perspectives upon subjects of more general public interest. For example, the emotional meaning of Money; the experience of Donor Conception in creating families and the use of psychoanalytic ideas in understanding Shakespeare.  

The most recent additions to this broad-ranging and fascinating series are The Non Linear Mind, edited by James Rose and Graham Shulman, and The Feeling Brain, by Mark Solms, which is an introduction to neuro-psychoanalysis.
