Review:

Behrendt has tackled a formidable challenge head-on here, namely the dream of finding a fully deterministic account of human social behaviour. He has provided this, not in general terms, but at the detailed level of neural networks and neurotransmitter systems. His readers will be eternally grateful for the highly impressive compendium of relevant neuroscientific findings, integrated with psychoanalytic theory. This is a monumental, masterful achievement by an extremely able scientific mind. --Mark Solms, Director of the Arnold Pfeffer Center for Neuro-Psychoanalysis, New York Psychoanalytic Institute

Behrendt's impressive scholarship takes us through a vast neuroanatomically anchored description of animal actions that behavioral neuroscience has accumulated across the past half century of intensive investigations of animal and human brains and behaviours. This is not for the faint of heart. This encyclopaedic text demands much of readers, and offers them abundant scholarship that permits them to understand the reach and implications of a cross-species functional neuroscience for understandings those vast 'dynamically unconscious' neural mechanisms that govern human and animal actions. There are vast implications here for understanding the human predicament, clinical disorders, and psychoanalytical approaches that seek to restore balance to troubled brains and minds. --Jaak Panksepp, PhD, Baily Endowed Professor of Animal Well-Being Science, College of Veterinary Medicine, Washington State University, USA
