This makes it an exciting and fascinating issue for the analysts who are forging new forms of thought on the interplay of sibling relationships.Prophecy Coles has gathered a distinguished group of writers to bring their wisdom to the impact of sibling relationships on such diverse topics as siblings across the generations; sex and violence in siblings; twins; and siblings in couple therapy.The Contributors: Leonore Davidoff, R.D. Hinshelwood, Vivienne Lewin, Juliet Mitchell, Elspeth Morley, Estelle Roith, Margaret Rustin, Michael Rustin, Jennifer Silverstone, Harriet Thistlethwaite, and Gary Winship.
