From our regular book review column.

This book is remarkable simply because it contains so many great papers by Erik Erikson. This grand neo-Freudian has been entombed in innumerable medical school courses on human development, in part because his concept of development is easy to understand and easy to remember. Reading his actual writings, however, brings the reader back to the fact that he was a great original and a great writer!
