In this book, the seminal case histories of Melanie Klein and her followers are closely scrutinised, to examine both what the clinicians were noticing in their patients, and how they conceptualized those processes.


What are the contents and processes of the mind as they are revealed in the patient’s speech on the couch, and what is the specific sense a Kleinian makes of them?


At once a fascinating history of the Kleinian clinical approach and a superb training text, Robert Hinshelwood’s Clinical Klein is an indispensable work of reference in the burgeoning field of Klein studies.
