"Robert Lindner's 1944 classic Rebel Without a Cause follows the successful analysis and hypnosis of a criminal psychopath. In full transcriptions of their 46 sessions, Lindner takes his patient into the depths and recesses of his childhood memories. Plumbing the free-associative monologues for clues to unlock the causes of his patient's criminal behavior, Lindner portrays a man cut off from himself and unable to attach to others." "Following the threads uncovered in the sessions, Lindner reveals to his patient long hidden incidents from infancy and childhood that served to propel him toward a troubled and chaotic adulthood, full of armed robbery, break-ins, and random sexual encounters. With care and diligence, patient and analyst began to excavate the patient's childhood and reconstruct it as a foundation for analysis."--P. [4] of cover.
