The discovery of several incomplete chapters of Ralph R. Greensons long-awaited Volume II of The Technique and Practice of Psychoanalysis form the cornerstone of this memorial to a man considered by many to be the best clinical psychoanalyst of his generation. Using the detailed outlines of the chapters that Greenson had intended to write, the editors solicited prominent American psychoanalysts to cover the planned content areas. Such adherence to Greensons plan makes this a worthy companion to Volume I.
