[nice tight clean copy, minimal shelfwear, one-time owner's name rubber-stamped on ffep and title page; jacket a bit edgeworn, a few small closed tears, minor dog-earing at spine ends]. "Dr. Horney sees the neurotic process as a special form of human development, the antithesis of healthy growth. Under favorable conditions, she believes, man's energies go toward realizing his own potentialities. Under inner stress, a person becomes alienated from his real self and throws his energies into creating and building up a false, idealized self, based on pride but harassed b doubts, self-contempt, and self-hate. Like all her books, [this one] bears the mark of Karen Horney's individuality, her penetrating and original insights into the human personality and the quality she possesses of making these insights intelligible and significant to her readers." This was Dr. Horney's last book, published two years before her death, and is regarded as her summary of her ideas regarding neurosis. This is the first printing (unstated), with a printed price of $4.50 on the unclipped jacket.
