1 In this book, I write phantasy with a ph, following common Kleinian usage since the
1920s, when Klein’s work began.
2 The International Psychoanalytical Association had been founded in 1910 and Freud had
designated Carl Jung as its first president. He was succeeded after World War I by Karl
Abraham and later by Ernest Jones.
3 One of Jones’s motives for his support of Klein seems to have been his personal interest

children ( 1975) for accounts of male-female developmental di√erences.
9 Jacqueline Rose, in her chapter ‘‘Negativity in the work of Melanie Klein,’’ has empha-
sized that much of the critique directed against Klein was centered around the issue of
