Publisher Comments:

Essential Papers on Borderline Disorders: One Hundred Years at the Border gathers between two covers the classic articles on the subject of borderline psychology. It includes essays by such core figures as Otto Kernberg, John G. Gunderson, Edith Jacobson, and Erik H. Erikson, as well as an extensive introduction by the editor providing a comprehensive overview of the field.

Contributors: Hagop S. Akiskal, Michael Balint, Helene Deutsch, Erik H. Erikson, John Frosch, Roy Grinker, Sr., John G. Gunderson, Paul Hoch, C. H. Hughes, Edith Jacobson, Otto Kernberg, Seymout S. Kety, Robert P. Knight, Margaret S. Mahler, Phillip Polatin, James Cowles Prichard, Sandor Rado, Irving C. Rosse, Melitta Schmideberg, Harold F. Searles, Margaret T. Singer, Robert L. Spitzer, Adolph Stern, and Leo Stone.

Synopsis:

So much literature has accumulated, over so long a period, on borderline conditions in psychiatry, that the time has come for an anthology. Hence this book. It is not an altogether pleasant task preparing the collection of articles that makes up such an anthology, since one is aware at the outset of pleasing only a few--while offending many--authors, both living and dead, since many more works must be excluded than selected. In this anthology, the author noticed that while he chose some very prominent author for inclusion, others even more prominent could allude to only obliquely because they had only a little to say that bore directly on borderline conditions. Some of the great articles do not mention the word 'borderline.' And some of the older articles that do use the word, are not great.

Synopsis:

"Korean unification is one of the most important issues on the international agenda today. Hart-Landsberg's broad-ranging inquiry develops a perspective that is rarely heard, and that merits careful attention. It is a valuable contribution to a debate that should not be delayed."

--Noam Chomsky
