Essential Papers on Object Loss (Essential Papers in Psychoanalysis) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Throughout the twentieth century, beauty shops have been places where women could enjoy the company of other women, exchange information, and share secrets. The female equivalent of barbershops, they have been institutions vital to community formation and social change.

But while the beauty shop created community, it also reflected the racial segregation that has so profoundly shaped American society. Links between style, race, and identity were so intertwined that for much of the beauty shop's history, black and white hairdressing industries were largely separate entities with separate concerns. While African American hair-care workers embraced the chance to be independent from white control, negotiated the meanings of hair straightening, and joined in larger political struggles that challenged Jim Crow, white female hairdressers were embroiled in struggles over self-definition and opposition to their industry's emphasis on male achievement. Yet despite their differences, black and white hairdressers shared common stakes as battles were waged over issues of work, skill, and professionalism unique to women's service work.

Permanent Waves traces the development of the American beauty shop, from its largely separate racial origins, through white recognition of the "ethnic market," to the present day.

Book News Annotation:

A collection of the most significant contributions to psychoanalytic and psychological understanding of the effect of object loss on adults and children.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

This choice collection contains some of the most significant contributions to psychoanalytic and psychological understandingof the effect of object loss on adults and children. Designed for psychoanalysts, psychotherapists and students of psychoanalysis and psychotherapy, this important volume focuses on those contributions most directly relevant to the clinical situation, without neglecting fundamental descriptive and theoretical contributions.

Rita V. Frankiel has culled the literature on object loss and assembled the most salient and conceptually powerful contributions to the field. Each paper is introduced with a brief summary of its contribution to the development of our understanding of object loss. This valuable resource thus provides the serious student of object loss with a ready source of the most important materials on the subject.
