The exciting discovery of several incomplete chapters ofthe author's long awaited Volume 2 of The Technique and Practice of Psychoanalysis form the cornerstone of this memorial to a man considered by many to be the best clinical psychoanalyst of his generation. Using the detailed outlines of the chapters that the author had intended to write, the editors have solicited prominent American psychoanalysts to cover the planned content areas. Such adherence to the author's plan makes this a worthy companion to Volume 1. One of the most important contributions of Volume 1 was its elucidation of the clinical implications of the structural model. The contributors to Volume 2 continue this theoretical heritage as they use the advances in theory of technique to expand on the areas the author deemed important. The interpretative process, for example, is examined in detail. So are the issues of suitability and the technical problems posed by acting out and by countertransference. The analytic process is examined with particular emphases on working through, dream interpretation, and the termination phase.
