""Beyond the Anti-Group: survival and transformation" builds on the success of Morris Nitsun's influential concept of the Anti-group, taking it into new domains of thought and practice in the current century. "A historical and ideological breakthrough" (Tuttman 1991), the concept focuses on anxiety and hostility within, towards and between groups, as well as the destructive potential of groups. In Beyond the Anti-Group", Morris Nitsun continues his inquiry into the clinical implications of the anti-group but also explores the concept beyond the consulting room, in settings as wide-ranging as cultural and environmental stress in the 21st century, the fate of public health services and the themes of contemporary art. Readers of Beyond the Anti-Group: Survival and Transformation will be stimulated by the depth, breadth and creativity of the author's analysis and by the excursion into new fields of inquiry. This book offers new scope, new ideas and new impetus for psychotherapists, group analysts and group practitioners in general, students of group and organizational processes, and those working on the boundary between psychotherapy and the arts"--

The ‘anti-group’ is a major addition to the theory and practice of group psychotherapy and applied group work. It comprises the negative, disruptive elements, which threaten to undermine and even destroy the group, but when contained, have the potential to mobilise the group’s creative processes. Understanding the ‘anti-group’ gives therapists new perspectives on the nature of group relationships and alternative strategies for managing destructive behaviour. With a new introduction written by the author, this Classic Edition of ‘The Anti-Group: Destructive forces in the group and their creative potential’, reassesses the theoretical base of group work , looking critically at the contribution made by S.H. Foulkes and comparing it to the work of Wilfred Bion. First published in 1996, Morris Nitsun takes a broader view of the subject, and places the ‘anti-group’ in the context of universal ambivalence about groups, which is evident in society at large. The 1996 edition has been widely read and is considered to be a historical and ideological breakthrough. With its timeless appeal, the Classic Edition will be essential reading for psychotherapists, particularly group analysts and group psychotherapists: group practitioners in general; organizational consultants; sociologists and social psychologists; academics and others in cultural studies and commentators on the link between psychotherapy and the arts.

This is the story of the French Revolution told from a psychological and group dynamic perspective whose aim is to shed light on the workings of the revolutionary mind and the emotions at work in society that pave the way towards revolution and war. The French Revolution was an important milestone in Western social and political development: it carried within itself the seeds of a humane society but turned into murder and execution. Group emotions such as fear, rage, euphoria and fervor influenced the course of events. This unique historical, psychological study of the French Revolution offers insight into how we view today's social upheavals and conflicts—conflicts of opposing mythologies with their psychological overtones interpreted as political doctrines—as evinced currently in Russia's territorial claims to Eastern Ukraine, Islamic fundamentalist wars, and the Israeli–Palestinian conflict.

Amidst war, economic meltdown, and ecological crisis, a "new spirit of radicalism is blooming" from New York to Cairo, according to Chris Dixon. In Another Politics, he examines the trajectory of efforts that contributed to the radicalism of Occupy Wall Street and other recent movement upsurges. Drawing on voices of leading organizers across the United States and Canada, he delivers an engaging presentation of the histories and principles that shape many contemporary struggles. Dixon outlines the work of activists aligned with anti-authoritarian, anti-capitalist, and anti-oppression politics and discusses the lessons they are learning in their efforts to create social transformation. The book explores solutions to the key challenge for today’s activists, organizers, fighters, and dreamers: building a substantive link between the work of "against," which fights ruling institutions, and the work of "beyond," which develops liberatory alternatives.
