Icon’s intriguing series of small books on the key ideas of psychoanalysis grows apace with three brand new titles, all by hugely respected authors. Depression is now recognised by the World Health Organisation as the world-wide commonest cause of disability and death of any disease. How can we understand and begin to treat this epidemic of human misery?
