Volume 17, the first volume of The Annual published by The Analytic Press, includes John Gedo's examination of the "epistemology of transference" and Edwin Wallace's outline of a "phenomenological and minimally theoretical psychoanalysis." Studies in applied psychoanalysis focus on the art of Edvard Munch (Mavis and Harold Wylie); George Eliot's Romolo (Jerome Winer); and psychoanalysis and music (Martin Nass).
