Inhaltsangabe: This book of essays comes from the mind of a sophisticated psychoanalyst and clinical psychologist who is also a poet and a pioneering rock climber, who broke new ground in youth work by running a café for disaffected youth in London's Hoxton district. Dr Biven later worked intensively with the most intractable young offenders in Britain's 'Secure Units'. In True Pretences he explores the nature of suicide, pain, female perversion, sadomasochism and teenage runaways. The book includes a chapter on the psychoanalytic meaning of skin, with a footnote on the poet Sylvia Plath. Two controversial essays contrast the meanings of freedom and authority in the development of the delinquent character. Both essays question the prevailing attempts to rehabilitate these violent youngsters. An original and flexible mind, linked to a deeply empathic and truthful heart, gives a sense of unity to a series of essays on some of today's moral dilemmas, and the help that the psychoanalytic approach can make available.
