Meet our Authors: Nathan M. Szajnberg - January 2019

Nathan M. Szajnberg was the Sigmund Freud Professor of Psychoanalysis at the Hebrew University.  He was also the Wallerstein Research Fellow in Psychoanalysis (2005-2016) and has received two NIMH awards, the first in adolescent psychiatry and the second in infant psychiatry, as well as the Ticho Award.  His work concentrates on development, attachment and psychoanalysis, including its aesthetic aspects.  A graduate of the University of Chicago College and Medical School, he also completed training in General Psychiatry and Child/Adolescent Psychiatry and later in Psychoanalysis. His major personal influences include Bruno Bettelheim, Peter Giovacchini, and Robert Wallerstein.  

He has published across a wide variety of genres including biographies, empirically researched original work, and novels. His first book published with us, Jacob and Joseph, Judaism’s Architects and Birth of the Ego Idealstudies the ancient Hebrew story of Joseph and Jacob through the lens of modern psychology, and in doing so presents a study which not only tackles the past but grapples with its relevancy for the present.

Nathan describes his first experience publishing with Cambridge Scholars as such:

“Cambridge Scholars Publishing has been a refreshing experience.  From the moment they accepted my manuscript, I have been impressed with their professionalism, concern for accuracy, and the demanding quality of their copyediting and overall design. They also have been open to my participation in designing the book cover.  Their peer review has been efficient, yet to the highest scholarly standards.  Scholarly publishing is challenging. Yet Cambridge Scholars makes the experience lively and with a dedicated group of professionals from the acquisitions editor to the designer to marketing. 

I am grateful to Cambridge Scholars and hope to continue to work with them. I believe that readers expect the highest intellectual, scholarly standards and accuracy from them.  As a psychoanalyst, I am honoured to join their ranks.”
