Psychoanalysis has been applied to the understanding of social groups, organisations and cultures for a very long time, and there have been many different approaches. This book brings together the contributions to a field which could be called "psychoanalytic social psychology", from a very wide-ranging group of authors. The substantial introductory Chapters by the Editors describe a conceptual map of psychoanalytic ideas on social groups that have been formed around the world. These introduce eight Chapters from eminent authors on the topic, writing in Europe, the Americas and Britain.
