"The International Dictionary of Psychoanalysis is a unique resource for the student and scholar of psychoanalysis. The use of the term "international" is valid, as this American edition is derived from the French edition, a third of whose entries were translated from different languages. The preface to the French edition, reprinted here, includes a history of the literature, provides a discussion of the similar, important titles concerning psychoanalysis, and gives the reader an excellent historical framework. More importantly, the preface clearly states the philosophy upon which this work was based and does not stray, that being one of Freudian principles. A number of features not found in similar dictionaries help make this a useful research tool. Indexing is thorough and varied. The concepts/notions index provides translations of the most common psychoanalytic terms and concepts into five languages. A detailed chronology of psychoanalysis, spanning from 1815 to 2004, is based on over 20 years of research and historical data compiled by Mijolla. A large bibliography in the last volume compiles all references listed in the 1,500 dictionary entries. There are multiple ways to navigate the contents; the reader may scan the list of entries, the thematic outline, the cumulative index, or browse the alphabetically arranged entries. A typical entry of a major concept (dream symbolism, for example), provides a narrative on the psychoanalytic principle and definition, a discussion of Freud's writings and modern interpretations. This enhances the educational aspects of the dictionary. This dictionary would be a valuable part of any university or special library collection that supports upper-division undergraduate and graduate-level programs in psychology, psychiatry, or medicine."
