Routledge published an interesting selection of papers by Andrew Samuels. The author does not need introduction. His work in the field of theory of contemporary analytical psychology, including its intersection with other schools of thought, is well known and recognized. This volume, which is author’s self-selection, may be a good introduction to his thought. The book is available both in paper (Hardcover) and in e-book edition (Amazon Kindle). Karnac Books is now offering the paper volume book for a very good price.
