Reading Klein

Rustin, M. and Rustin, M. 2016. Routledge.

Reading Klein introduces Klein’s work in a highly accessible style, providing substantial extracts from her writings and commentaries on them by the authors. The book provides a lucid account of her published writing, presented by two distinguished analysts who know her theory well and have made creative use of it in their own work. Its aim is to show how substantial her contribution to psychoanalysis was, and how indispensable her ideas remain.

Margaret and Michael Rustin discussed Reading Klein at a Melanie Klein Trust online event in February 2021. Their introductions to this event, in which they discuss the background to writing the book and thoughts on its content, are available to download below.
