Not illustrated. 1872 edition. Excerpt: ... CHAPTER XV. Sketches of ministers--Robert Roberts--John Elias--Ebenezer Morris--Ebenezer Richard--Conclusion. Before laying aside our pen, we should like to enable our readers to form an idea of some of those men whom God raised at the most critical period of the history of Welsh Methodism, and whose ministry was blessed by His Spirit to make such a wide and lasting impression upon the Principality. And here there is a serious difficulty meeting us at the very outset. They are so many, that it would require a large volume to give even a brief sketch of their history. A list of the names of those who have occupied an important place in the Connexion, and have done a great work in its behalf, would itself fill several pages. We will select a few of the most prominent, and our readers will please understand that they represent a great many more whose names we are compelled to leave unmentioned. Our purpose will be answered better by giving a comparatively lengthened account of three or four, than by devoting half-a-dozen lines each to forty or fifty. There was one in North Wales who had died nine years before the Connexion ordained its own ministers, and who, if he had lived, would have been among the first to be selected for that purpose. This was Robert Roberts of Clynog, in Carnarvonshire. He was originally a slate-quarryman, and afterwards a farm-servant, before he became a preacher of the Gospel.

INTRODUCING guide to the pioneering child psychoanalyst. Born in Vienna in 1882, Melanie Klein became a pioneer in child psychoanalysis and developed several ground-breaking concepts about the nature and crucial importance of the early stages of infantile development. Although she was a devoted Freudian, many of her ideas were seen within the psychoanalytic movement as highly controversial, and this led to heated conflicts, particularly with Freud's daughter, Anna. Introducing Melanie Klein brilliantly explains Klein's ideas, and shows the importance of her startling discoveries which raised such opposition at the time and are only now being recognized for their explanatory power. Her concepts of the depressive position and the paranoid-schizoid position are now in common usage and her work has to be taken seriously by psychoanalysts the world over. She is also now important in many academic fields within the human sciences.
