This volume on groups emphasises the importance of a psychoanalytic analysis, as opposed to a behaviourist account. Work by Foulkes and Bion is reconsidered in the light of current clinical practice by Robin Cooper and Michael Halton, and the American scene is represented through an essay by Otto Kernberg, using Freud's work on group psychology.

Nobody with an interest in the behaviour and dynamics of groups will want to be without this collection of essays written from a wide variety of psychoanalytic perspectives.What is a Group? poses some fascinating and fundamental questions about the peculiar nature of collective psychodynamic processes.
