This fourth volume of "The Annual Survey of Psychoanalysis" encompasses the published work during 1953. The literature is most adequately covered, including the presentation of the important books of the year and not only the psychoanalytic articles themselves but also much in the way of related material. The bibliography includes 258 items listed separately at the end of the volume, following which there is an extremely adequate index. The material is abstracted under a number of headings, including History, Critique and Methodology, Critique of Specific Contributions or Contributors, Ego Psychology and Instinct Studies, Clinical Studies, Dream Studies, Psychoanalytic Child Psychiatry, Applied Psychoanalysis, Psychoanalytic Therapy, Psychoanalytic Training, Psychoanalytic Studies in Psychiatry, and, finally, Psychoanalytic Books.

As has been stated in a previous review, this volume presents the psychoanalytic literature for the year 1953 in style and form much more suitable for understanding than the original articles. The abstracts are well written
