"This is quite simply the most intelligent book on contemporary psychoanalysis to be found and the best integration of theory and practice I have read." - Christopher Bollas, author of The Infinite Question & The Evocative Object World

"This is an exceptional work that should find itself in every psychoanalyst's and psychotherapist's library." - James S. Grotstein, David Geffen School of Medicine, UCLA, Training and Supervising Analyst Los Angeles Psychoanalytic Society/Institute and The Psychoanalytic Center of California, USA

"This book will effectively constitute a milestone for the preservation of clinical psychoanalysis as a non-dogmatic, dynamic form of therapy, whose predicates are perennially open to revision." - Dany Nobus, Brunel University, UK

"With this, her first book, Jean White has made a serious, highly intelligent and articulate contribution to psychoanalytic theory and practice... This book can serve both as an introduction to contemporary psychoanalytic theory, and also as a very thorough, searching comparative study of the contribution made by differing theoretical approaches to clinical practice... I consider this book to be a very impressive achievement." - Janet Richards, Psychodynamic Practice, Vol. 14, No. 4, November 2008

"As an introduction to contemporary psychoanalysis and analytic psychotherapy, Generation could hardly be bettered...Her account is detailed, sophisticated, and grounded in an acute awareness of the mobility and plasticity of analytic thought, its developments and transformations...Most valuably of all, White punctuates the book with movingly candid vignettes from her own work, which enable her show how aspects of each of the paradigms can, from patient to patient, or session to session, be allowed into play to honour the complexity and diversity of the human subject... She gives the word which she has borrowed for her title its full range and weight; it speaks to how one generation builds on the work and insight of another, and how psychoanalysis itself is at its best a generative, fecund activity...The book should be essential reading on psychoanalytic trainings, if it is not already; it will also refresh and open up new horizons for experienced practitioners." - Robert Snell, London Centre For Psychotherapy, British Journal of Psychotherapy, Vol. 24 No. 3, 2009
